Help! I’m a decent teacher but admin has a target on my back this year & NO ONE knows why. I’m receiving my second write-up for an absolutely ridiculous reason (my rep agrees that it’s total crap but they manipulate the wording just-so to make it sound legit), but a third & I can be fired. I have to finish the year where I am to have my student loans forgiven. I’m terrified to go to work every day. A large part of my future is on the line & I’m stuck. It’s so unjust but I have no recourse.

Does anyone else feel like some of the recent layoffs are premature? Especially with the President’s reopening guidelines today. I feel that agencies could of held on to employees longer.
Just got laid off and looking for opportunities. Would be super helpful if someone can help me here: 1. How much tine does it take to find a new job? 2. Is it wiser to wait it out till jan before applying (dec break?)? 3. Are there any seasonal cycles for lateral hires? TIA!

Question: why do you think the “side hustle” become such a key thing for recruiters/CDs when interviewing creatives?

Living in SF but remote until September (earliest). Rent is too high + apartment too small to justify staying for 3+ months. Playing with the idea to leave (temp or perm). Are people doing the same?
