Hello helpful people,
I have recently been laid off with my current company as company is closing its operation and looking for new role. So, if you know or have any opportunities related to junior mechanical engineer role in Canada, please let me know. I have close to 2 years experience working as manufacturing and quality engineer in manufacturing industries.
Thanks in advance.

Got laid off. Not completely unexpected but still stings. Everything on the table but difficult to decide path forward. Been doing this so long I never considered anything else. How do you prioritize?

I am helping a colleague out with the job search. He/she was recently part of a layoff and looking for the next gig. This person is definitely in my top three of best project managers ever/all time. Any PM or Sr. PM roles out there? I know it’s a little dry right now, so forgive me for asking. He/she currently lives in the Pacific Time Zone; remote opportunities would be great.

Hello Everyone

I accepted an offer with a great company. I am happy with the position and there are good growth opportunities but I wasn't able to negotiate well and I accepted the offer as I was laid off and wanted to start a new role asap. I feel my salary is too low and with all the rising costs it will be hard to sustain. What should I do in this case and is there a way I can ask my company to increase my base salary.
