Supposedly Dentsu lay-off is only 100 people not 6,000 according to a town hall meeting. Anyone else hear the same?

Until Tuesday, my bf worked for Merkle in the US. He was laid off on Tuesday morning. They were cagey with him when it came to how many people were impacted.

I think it’s only 100 people across Carat (still 6,000 for the network)

Depends where you are but in Canada, I believe they said it was around 70 people on the Wednesday town hall. That number won’t include the other markets.

So I've seen a number of articles floating around recently saying all Americans (not just the priority groups) could get the covid-19 vaccines by April. Thoughts on whether that is actually highly likely? I initially thought end of 2021 was more likely, but perhaps I should be more optimistic?

Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
