What do you mean?

Like if are you protected by identifying as a protected veteran? I think not.

I would imagine there are some strings attached for a corporation if they take a kick back from hiring a qualified candidate

Nah won’t matter I think, unless you play a critical role in the org

I seem to go through this cycle where I'll try to fix a problem, fix it and then go back to my old ways. I'm trying to fight against it but basically my performance review is coming up and I think it's likely I'm going to be let go because of my failure to meet expectations. Earlier in the year I was going through a rough time and working through it, I have gotten better over the course of the year but I feel it's not enough. I got fired from my last job. I'm so sick of this cycle

Financing question - If you get laid off or have a gap in employment, does your 2 year proof of income “clock” (for lack of a better term), restart? Basically asking if you need to have 2 yrs of consecutive W2 income to great loan terms? For context, I was approved for great terms earlier this year but didn’t go thru with a purchase

I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?

Pretty sure I’m getting laid off tomorrow morning. Our company was acquired and now I’ve got a meeting at 8am with head of HR & our VP to “discuss next steps” for my position. I wish they’d just put it in an email and save me the next 24 hrs of stressing but here we are.. any advice on questions, etc I should prepare before tomorrows meeting? Talk about worst time of year to lose your job 😭 I’m also expecting so it’s adding to my stress. Ugh.
