Does anyone have any leads on potential jobs in IT, like IT Support or Help Desk in DC? My SO was laid off today due to COVID.
Can someone explain the difference between being counseled out and being fired? With an emphasis on why counsel someone out but not fire them, and vice versa.
For those who have been laid off, what does it look like right before? (like HR schedules a meeting with you?). I have this really bad pit in my stomach. No trolling or sarcastic stuff please.
Damn. A gunman fired at Republican members of Congress. I don't care what your political stance is, things should never get violent.
Two strangers are bickering on my 6 am flight. "I saw you cut!" and "You were zone 2, I was zone 1!" were fired. All right, fellow plane prisoners 🍿
Anyone know of any good tools/resources with job prospects for 65+ trying to find employment after behind laid off during COVID? I imagine many have been forced into early retirement. Unfortunately, it appears the discrimination is very real when it comes to allowing “retirees” to participate in our workforce.
How is EY doing with layoffs etc
The lions are about to hire the D coordinator from the Patriots who just lost to the D coordinator of the Eagles who the lions fired a few years ago 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ I will never see lions SB 🙁
I was laid off from my job awhile back and I have a gap through temp jobs I was doing. How should I display this on my resume? Leave the gap or say contractor or temp.
I was laid off and promised my work for my portfolio. I've reached out multiple times but it hasn't come. Any suggestions for handling this?
What happens if you’re an associate and you’re fired for “performance” suddenly. You had a performance review the week before and their was no talk of this. How do you perceive this?
Have any of you gotten fired? Not laid off or anything? Like fired due to performance or low utilization, etc. If so, how did you bounce back from it?
I know everyone is talking about Deutsch’s CCO getting fired, but did Venables Bell’s CCO get fired too? It didn’t sound like it from the article, so I’m curious what’s going on since I was actually interested in working there but am unsure now. Why are all these CCOs so stupid? 🤦🏾♀️
How can I earn a bazillion babillion dollars so I can FIRE and not have to worry about working? Older friend got laid off. Contd...
Just got fired. Not surprised and kind of relieved but ego is bruised. Anyone got any stories of when they got fired/laid off and it turned out for the better?
Hi, I am Oracle RMC Implementation Specialist. Laid off due to Covid. I work for a big4. Anyone hiring? Would appreciate any pointers.
Donald - You're fired!
How has COVID been impacting your personal life (e.g., childcare management, cabin fever), your firm and/or clients beyond WFH (e.g., layoffs, funding, project delays, unpaid leave, etc.)?
Comey just got fired 👀
Who else has introspected about how short life is, quality of relationships, work/life balance, security of finances, how things can change rapidly after seeing the COVID world. Share your thoughts?
What industry opportunities are available for a healthcare consultant with policy expertise and some experience in HIT? I have 5.5 YOE in consulting, 2 health related masters MPH Epidemiology and MSW Social Policy from an Ivy League. I’m don’t mind the WLB in consulting but I’m just tired of the environment and want to do something meaningful that pays well.
Finding it extremely difficult to stay motivated. I feel exhausted from the hours and even less motivated when I find out how much of a variance there is in comp. How did ppl know when to go private?
Hey 🐠, what is your base salary vs. the price of your home when you bought it? I’ll start - I’m currently at a 115k base and paid $218k for my home. I live in Atlanta.
The babies that I bake fill a volcano. I’m clogging up the kill. My wretched baby paste requires Drano!
Posted a few days ago about lateraling to a firm to work for a rain maker and having been put on a deal with him alone (first deal at the new firm). Subsequent to the scolding emails we finally managed to almost close at 18:00 on Friday only to realise that the numbers didn’t add. The same document that I screwed up before led to one entity paying the wrong amount. I’ve never ran a deal alone as a first year and the partner has been MIA for most of the deal. Long story short (cont in comments) -
I know this is stupid / petty but I just found out my new salary & I finally make more than my husband! He’s always made more & I spend more than him and have always felt bad about it. Not any more 🙌
Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)
H1B visa and 6 years are almost up. Received approved perm and waiting on I-140 followed with the 3 year extension. To switch from company A to company B - what are the factors that are to be considered?
I got an offer from a firm I like. Offer is good I’m happy. But have a question — Would it be ok to push back on the start date in the offer letter? I would liken to have a week or two between when I’d end at current firm and start at new firm. If this is ok, should I talk to them directly, or go through my recruiter?
Currently a recent college grad and working as an analyst in financial services. Majored in Risk Mgmt and working a rotation within Risk. Contemplating whether I should go back to school for an MBA or JD? Would like to be in house counsel at my company with JD or Senior/Exec leader with MBA. Thoughts?
MD2......4 years until vested, a little more than 6 until I can comfortably retire. Love working with clients and practitioners, but SO tired of the politics/ego game. Is going internal an option?
EY folks- I am expecting an offer and wanted to understand How much time does H1B transfer takes, start to end from attorneys reaching out to you till you receive approval?
Is it easy to go from small local firm to big 4?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Interviewed with PwC yesterday. Still have not heard back - does this mean they've dropped me? Do they usually get back to you regarding rejections,
What’s it like working in insurance recovery litigation? I’m in general complex lit now and am wondering if moving to ins recovery will remove all aspects of lit that I like. I’m a junior associate.
I’m really good at pretending to be interested in what people are saying when they talk to me. I’ll kind of zone out but can remember/single out the main talking points so that I can bring it up later with them and they’ll be stoked. Does anyone else feel the same way?
