Sr. Writer/ACD in LA laid off twice this year. Horrible luck. Previously worked at Ad Age A-List agency and trying to get back in the big game. Anomaly, TBWA, R/GA, Etc. Anyone have a lead?

Can you get fired or laid off if you are on a short term disability leave? Does this call for a lawsuit if this happens?
So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?
Few people in the world make more money than Mark Reed, John Wren, Michael Roth or Arthur Sadoun. Cant they offer anything to avoid layoffs?
I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?
Is it a bad idea to get a new job this period? My firm is not talking about layoffs at the moment. Has anybody moved from their somewhat secure job?
Why do I always see job postings for Pharma and Healthcare agencies? It’s like they can never fill their roles. 24/7 365. If I was in that part of advertising and enjoyed the work, I feel like my job security, promotions and money would be in a much better spot than where I am now, If anyone is looking for a job due to Covid layoffs, might not hurt to suck it up and do pharma work for a bit!

I had a recent manager that I’m thinking about reporting to HR. He called me emotional during a meeting, made a joke about how I was “fired” in front of the client, and in general berated me everyday. I fear the reprecrussions though. What do you think? Anyone else been through something like this?

Are consulting layoffs / hiring sprees a good way to gauge the "pulse" of the economy? Is a downturn near with all these layoffs we've been hearing about?
Seeking Advice: To MBA or not? ~5 years total work experience post Bachelors in consulting (Finance + Consumer engagements) and FAANG (current - strategy, ops & analytics). Happy in my current role and on a post mba level comp package. That being said every exec in my department is a top 5 mba graduate, so I’m wondering if in the long run it will serve me well to do an mba or not? Short term doesn’t make much sense, but in the long run?

When updating your LinkedIn is it good or bad to specify what “type” of consultant you are in the title? For example - Management consultant, Healthcare consultant, Technology consultant (at x firm), etc. Or just put Consultant (at x firm).

I am interviewing for an in-house counsel position at a large corporation. I have four 30-minute (and back to back) Zoom interviews set up with various executives at the company (one being the GC to whom the position reports). Does anyone have any advice on how to prepare and what to expect?
Have to vent. Just had a leader say “you there??” via Slack because I didn’t respond within 60 seconds. About a non-urgent issue (sending an email out). This doesn’t help the fact that I’m trying to work on not feeling like I need to respond immediately to everyone. This is a recurring thing. Sorry if it comes off as petty but I feel like I need to be at their beck and call 24/7. I’ve gotten text messages in the evening similar to this too.

Fellow KPMG, anyone with aetna pos II plan? It seems like you have a 35,000 lifetime maximum. I also understand that oral drugs such as letrazole are covered under the prescription plan and you only need to enroll and register in the fertility plan if you need IUI and the more rigorous treatments. Questions: 1. Does the letrazole count towards the 35 lifetime maximum? Any other advice or insight would be appreciated.
My best COVID investment so far: 2 months of Leetcode subscription $35/month (SQL/Python) Joining FAANG as a Data Scientist @230K (from 130K). Masters + 5 YOE Thanks to EY for being so penny pinching and motivating me to lookout. The sign on @100K will definitely help. To all tech consultants stuck in consulting, the grass seems green on the other side. Good luck!
