Hello fellow designers!
I was laid off back in August and I have been trying to get a product/UX/UI job ever since then. With the recession and all of the crazy things that are happening right now it has been even harder.
Is anyone hiring a mid-level Product/UX/UI designer?
I have 3 years of experience as a UX/UI Designer and I am available to start working immediately! (Remote work is preferred since I live in Phoenix, AZ and there are not a lot of tech jobs here)
Hello! I need some insight here. I was part of a massive layoff 2 months ago. I accepted an offer and have been working at my current job for a week. I forgot to withdraw for another application and I was just contacted yesterday by FIS Global with an offer. I’m not sure what to do. FIS Global has slightly better benefits but I’m scared about the job stability. It’s what worries me the most.
With all these layoffs happening; particularly software tech companies; would you advise a job seeker to apply at big 4 consulting or take a chance with tech/software companies?

Wife and I are going in with my BIL and SIL to pay for a retirement/40th anniversary/MIL's 60th birthday trip to an island for my parents in law when they retire next year. They think we forgot about all of those events and are going to lose it when we give the gift at Christmas.
Father in law has had a lot of frustration, getting included in two mass layoffs in two years and taking two straight 40% pay cuts at the end of his career. We're so excited to give them something to look forward to.
For recruiters, hiring managers, HR, or anyone with past experience — if I’ve been laid off (startup financial problems) and I’ve set my LinkedIn to “open to work,” should I also post something that says I’m looking? I saw someone post their resume + open to work and asked people to share with their network, and while I’m not willing to be quite that vulnerable, it made me wonder if there’s value in a post like that.
Currently working as a tax senior at B4. I’m thinking about being a day trader trading stocks, bitcoins and currencies if i got laid off. Any thoughts, opinions, and suggestions?
Layoffs have started ! How will it impact Big4 ?
Blue shield of CA fired 375 people. Any other insurance companies having massive layoffs?
Plural tutoring session anyone? Looking to do as a weekend job. Current target OPs are "Has there been layoffs" and "What's your thoughts" but happy to expand.
B4 Folks - Do layoffs typically hit harder at the staff level or M+? I’ve heard people say we don’t make enough money to worry about it, but that doesn’t sound correct
My boss fired me because i ask for clarification on my employment right.
I got hired not long ago. I realise some of the employee benefits i was told (missing in the contract) contradict with what’s stated on the law. So i email the boss about it and ask for clarification. Immediately after the email i was fired.
Just want to make sure people know this and don’t apply jobs in this shady company- it is called UniQ Biotech, in Delta, BC, Canada
Did the QVA get debited to anyone's account?
I have still not received it.Tata Consultancy
What is the notice period at IHS Markit ? IHS Markit do we have a portal to put our resignation?
FYI - there’s been a lot of questions in this bowl on financial aid for admitted students lately.
Sending along my info for Juno (formerly leverEdge) if any of you haven’t signed up. Will likely give access to lowest private loan rates available this summer!

How much do managers in cyber make in southeast? I’m at PwC but I’m looking to make the switch from forensics but need to get some certifications as I don’t have much experience in it yet.
Who here has invested or looked into RHOC (Rchain) as a long term investment ? Why or why not ?
AFTER CAREFUL CONSIDERATION
Hi All, Which is better to choose between Tech Mahindra, Virtusa, Netcracker for BA role with 9years of total experience. Please pour your suggestions.
My boss has unreasonable expectations for our growth rate and has started micromanaging which is keeping me from doing my job. Not sure if I should keep trying to educate him or leave.
Not sure what’s going on anymore🙄
Should one add their personal technology that are currently used for remote work on their resume? Seems most companies will provide the hardware and software needed. However, it’s unclear if the employer will provide this through Teamviewer/VPN connection or will send an actual computer. Along with this, would it be pertinent to add your internet capability (speed, fios/cable/satellite/dsl)?
Im a respiratory therapist but want to leave my full.time job to either be part time or PRN because I want to transition to traveling RT. My dept hasn't been the best thus far as my experience and people like to twist words around. Is there a proper way or do I even have to tell them why I'd be change of status?
Salam everyone! I have a question about pursuing a career in Ib/Pe/VC. Do you think the money made in any of them would be halal? I would love to hear some opinions on this!

From my experience thus far (10 years) CD/ads are better giving copy feedback than CD/cws are giving art feedback.
CWs, advice, develop a good sense of aesthetic and even design/art lingo early on before you become CD. A CD CW should know what things like kerning is.
I swear to god that my CCO (cw) just asked me to “add more photoshop to an image” (verbatim) almost slapped a few PS logo on it.
In March, I started a new job. The first month was incredible and I killed every brief. But since last week, I’m dried. My creativity is like a rollercoaster, full of ups and downs. How do you guys deal with creative block? Is this normal for someone with 2,5 years of experience?
Did any US citizens move successfully to Europe? I have a medical thing, as a freelancer I can’t afford healthcare here, and I’m afraid I will become broke and homeless living in NYC. I want a better quality of life, and to just live while I still have time...
you can't be fired for being LGBT! happy monday everyone!
My posture is absolute shit. Tried getting a standing desk and it's great when I stand, but on days I want to sit I can't touch the ground in my chair and feel like a child just to be level.
Recruiter emails me, I respond w my interest. A week later, I get a text at 5AM today (Sunday morning) from a 2nd recruiter asking to talk between 7:30-9AM today. Seems ridiculous .. Is this normal?
So I was laid off in January after 6 months, finally got a new job in April, and now my boss just quit (no replacement because budget cuts) and the place is a shitshow as far as systems/analytics go..
I refuse to be one of those guys that strategically places my guitars in the background of my zoom calls.
I have a confession to make…. I’m really tired of hearing about my coworkers’ kids everyday… 😅
I’ve joked about this but honestly why isn’t there a Union for people that work in Advertising?
How is the work / life balance at Big Spaceship?
Hot take: Alexa is just an extremely long experiential marketing stunt for Black Mirror.
“I’ve seen media plans you people wouldn’t believe,” Roy says. “Paris Hilton and Jimmy Fallon exchanging pictures of monkeys. I watched Matt Damon glitter in the dark near a neon CRYPTO.COM sign. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”
I hope we can move away from crypto as an industry, society, species.
Large, well known account where you’re creating more of the same old tired work, or smaller lesser-known brand with big upside and a scrappy mentality... what would you rather work on?
Never! I've heard of people getting jobs 3-6 months following a lay off. Keep LinkedIn as is and use references from a different job.
+1 with freelancing.
Freelancing for the win!
Always! I actually did a conference in front of all my colleagues explaining how and why I've been laid off every job I've ever had.
Say you drank your weight in bourbon and now you're ready for work. They'll laugh and think you're joking... then gracefully say, "no seriously, I was freelancing.. but im ready for something different." Gets'em every time.
