I've been on here all day and I'd like someone other than PwC and Accenture to confirm these rumors. Also to pwc2, you must be a new hire. Your firm made it rain pink slips at the beginning of the year. So did Deloitte.

Only EY. The other firms generally hire for keeps, unless you feel like leaving.

PwC and Deloitte did it worse. PwC layoffs had a huge round feb, another June/July, and are still happening on a continuous basis. Bottom line is we don't need to be hiring 600 kids from campus each year but that would royally screw campus relations so the cycle continues. Also that clients are not willing to pay S& rates and some verticals are having a hard time closing deals as client funding dries up

Hi everyone! In addition to my consulting job, I’ve been editing resumes / cover letters on the side for years. I’ve been offering my services free of charge for those who have been laid off due to COVID—19, and have edited 350 resumes since the start of the pandemic. It’s been an awesome way to give back during this strange time. I’m now building a team to help me expand this initiative—if you’re interested, feel free to PM me!
