I’ve been laid off and, as I embark on my job search, I’d like to keep my marketing skills sharp. Any recommendations on must read books, or resources?
Hello everyone. I have 9 years of experience in iOS development. I have worked in swift, react native, reactjs, blockchain. Was working a product lead. Got laid off last week. Looking for an opportunity.
Thanks in advance!
Hey Everyone! I’ve unfortunately just got laid off from my company. This is my second time in 5 months getting laid off due to budget cuts. Quite frankly, I’m drained and in need of leads. I’m a DEI TA sourcing specialist with experience sourcing Technical, Finance, HR, Sales, Marketing, Supply Chain, Operations and Shared Services. I’m seeking a full time FINTECH company, but I’m open to opportunities because beggars can’t be choosers. Feel free me if you know of anything! —-thank you! 🙌🏽
Layoffs have started in my company. They say they’re carefully examining our division and have stressed confidence but... I’m crapping myself (continued)
Question for anyone who was laid off but found a new job:
If you request unemployment between the offer and starting, do you not receive the benefit? Worried about stating I've received an offer and that I'm no longer looking, though my new employer is the one having me wait a few weeks.
Anyone expecting layoffs due to COVID-19? There’s an indefinite hiring freeze and most promotions and have been paused. 👀
- culture deck is something else: if they think they can do better than you, they will just let you go
- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired
- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck
- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.
I am curious to see the number of new Grant Thornton PPMD promotees for 2019 once they are made public, in light of all of the recent layoffs and office closure/s.
I left an ACD Copy job in tech for a CD role at another co. I had one direct non-copy report and was set to hire 2 CWs when a hiring freeze then layoffs brought our vision to an end (Sept). I managed 2 freelancers, provided creative direction to them/our team and acted as sole co. writer but wonder if my short 5 1/2 mos as a CD won’t be enough for future CD job consideration. I’m open to Sr CW / ACD roles but unsure how to go for CD roles when I feel like an “almost CD.” Thoughts? TY!
My company just laid off all of the Client Experience team and I was unfortunately part of it. Anyone hiring for Account Managers or CSMs in Fintech?
CCTC including all benefits is 16.57 with 8.3 YOE, primarily focused on Manual Testing.
Is it worth looking for another opportunity?
I am afraid after seeing layoffs news of EPAM, Publicis Sapient & most of the other companies calling employees in the office.
I love my WFH in PwC India & base location of Kolkata. & the best thing is stability in PwC India, they never lay off!!

Hi all, I received news last week that I will be laid off unfortunately from my position. As a fresh international graduate I felt disappointed and down. However, I am back in the market hunting for a perfect position. If anyone has any leads or opportunities that they can lead me towards, I’ll really appreciate it. I’m looking for anything related to marketing/ research/ communication. Thank you
How do you not take a layoff due to RIF (involuntary reduction) personally? I was told it is not personal. All full time positions except 1 were let go. Contractors on the team still exist and so does the team. I can’t help but wonder whether performance was a factor and it makes me really sad even after a few months! Any examples of how laying off full time employees over contractors helps with cost cutting? Thanks!
Found out I’m being paid less than average for my role even though I was hired on as a senior project coordinator and later on “promoted” to a business analyst with no bump in pay. I am a contractor through an agency which I’m aware that plays a part in my take salary.
After talking to various colleagues who’ve been laid off or still working at the company they ALL make more than me. Two out of the three were hired in Jr roles one making 50 an hr and the other making 45. How to approach this?
True or false: there are more layoffs happening right now in advertising than at any point since 2008.
What is a competitive compensation according to the market after 3 years of consulting experience out of undergrad? Glassdoor suggests $92K as a market average.

What about other firms?
I’ve worked to make the transition from tech sales to the marketing/ad space for a couple of months. Does anyone have any advice? I’ve talked to 25+ people in the industry & have minimal job leads.

Hi everyone, a question to the tech industry at large.
Why are people so hesitant to hire disabled candidates?
I am a visually impaired practitioner in South Africa, with 7 years of experience, and as soon as recruiters or business owners hear/read that I'm disabled, the conversation gets awkward and I never hear from them again.
Hi all! I have 5+ years in product innovation and brand management roles. Based in London. Looking to transition into product management. Would love to connect, share my CV and tell you more about myself. Would anybody kindly be able to provide me with a referral? Many thanks!
I’m a recent graduate of masters and currently have 2 offers in my hand.
1) One with CITI Bank with 100k salary and no sign on bonus and as it is in my home town as I stay with my family needs no relocation bonus required.
2) This is with American Airlines in Dallas Fort Worth which offered 100k + 10k bonus + 18k relocation bonus (required)
Which ofer should I consider given I’m a new graduate and this is going to be my first job. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

After working in DevOps in a huge bank for 1.5 years I’ve decided in general it isn’t for me. It was the first job I got offered out of university and jumped at it due to my family situation to just start saving money.
