Awesome! Thanks for sharing. By the way stop apologizing with this "outing yourself" business - I see this app as more social networking with friends and colleagues than anything else. Really enjoy these types of posts!

It deals with self-worth, those ridiculous "performance-based" layoffs, and potential next steps. Like my last blog post, maybe you'll love it. Maybe you'll hate it. Whatever
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I was really REALLY down and embarrassed and ashamed when I got laid off, so I just hope this speaks to at least some of you out there. Stay strong Fb fam, you got dis.

Awesome post Deb!!Just read this in flight now...😉 loved the ending and I think after the brutal departures from PwC, people need some pick me up stuff and something to make them realize all has not ended and their still are better times to come! This post does exactly that!! Loved it!! #goawaybugs

Thanks guys :) am glad you enjoyed.

@McK - Totally agree with the social networking, I love this community! I always just feel like I'm breaking some fishbowl rule by posting personally identifiable info 🙈 but if I'm not I guess I should stop apologizing haha

Thank you 😄 I'm not sure all of my posts are going to speak as directly to consultants as my first two did (some upcoming topics are millennials, judging others, work life balance, speaking out), but if you guys don't mind I can totally still share them on here

Anyone have any idea when the hiring freeze might end within AWS ProServ? I’m currently at Amazon and have a TS clearance, PMP & CSM.

Instead of leaving, I’d love to go back to my “consulting roots” and join the ProServ team. I’m taking my AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam next weekend. Hoping this freeze is lifted soon.

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period. I’ve been on Thyroid meds but they don’t monitor my TSH (unless I ask it to be checked). The doctor says no need to wait unless I want a mental break. I don’t need a mental break but wonder if I’m rushing when my body is not ready. Just confused… thanks all!
