The hardest part of the job for me is coming up with ideas/answers on the spot. Spitballing with a partner before I’ve had time to think about the brief myself — can’t come up with anything useful.

Serious note to all those posting on LinkedIn offering to write a recommendation for anyone they know who has been laid off. How about just writing it without having to be asked first. The last thing someone who just lost their job wants to do is ask you for help, even if they need it. If you want to make their day, just go ahead and do it. Oh, and don’t write about them in the past tense, especially if they haven’t changed their employment status on LinkedIn.
