A relative of mine was recently laid off. He is 50+ y/o and still got a family to support so I am trying to help out. He did some accounting and reporting for a small transportation company for almost 20 years. Trying to think if there are any open roles for which he might be a fit.
Any supply chain professionals in here? Recently laid off from Deloitte and looking for potential leads for my next opportunity. If you know of any leads, please DM!
Do you center family planning around where you’re at in your career? A few years ago I told myself the appropriate time to start a family would be when I made 6 figures. I’ve hit that milestone and still cannot envision children for myself. Seems like there’s no such thing as stability and layoffs are rampant this year. Maybe it’s just the world we live in now but children sound like a terrible financial decision and an added stressor if anything could go wrong with my job or cost of living.
Unpopular opinion - Getting fired/let go is a great thing since it will teach you to be more prepared in the future, your job is never 100% safe, you get reminded you are an employee so no need to overwork, you get to find a better job, once you get back on your feet you won’t fear getting fired/let go anymore since you’ve already went through it and found another job!
First full week without full time work after getting laid off.
Help on fighting off the blues? My ego is bruised and I miss my team (and good pay lol) but management was very toxic. Applied for a few jobs but maybe best to wait until January. I’m just so exhausted.

I was just talking to a younger friend who goes to Cal and It seems like the kids these days hate FAANG or at least Amazon and Facebook are not desired at all. I personally don’t see too many issues working at either Amazon or Facebook because I work at Deloitte where I’m sure we have many questionable clients and worked in financial services before. Curious on whether people are thinking about the ethics of their exit company when deciding to move?
