Let's say you get fired for sexual harrassment (obviously the allegation is disputed). How do you come back from that and go out and get another job?
I was a month in as a Workday HCM Consultant with Accenture. They immediately throw me into the HCM courses to obtain my WD HCM certification. There are three parts HCM Essentials, HCM Applied, and HCM Practical. The passing score is 70 or above. I scored a 62 on the Essentials portion, I passed Applied, and at the end of this week Practical. During class, I received an “immediate connect” Team call and I was fired because of my low score. I'm devastated, and shocked. Yesterday was my birthday.
Anyone been fired for majorly screwing up? Did they give you some time to find a new job or was it pretty immediate?
Odd question, but is it possible to get laid off on purpose? I’m looking for other opportunities anyway and getting laid off might not be a bad thing in my situation to be honest. Anyone have any advice on how to achieve this lol
Worried that my new employer doesn’t know about my layoff and will pull the offer once they start the h1 transfer process and find out? Dint tell them to avoid being low balled? Any suggestions?
I got laid off from EPAM Systems on 12th September and LWD was same. Today I got 3 months and 12 days salary for September as severance pay. I got 1 lakh as JB which has also been waived off. However, I haven’t got my experience letter yet and waiting for it. Don’t worry if your FnF isn’t done yet. Just wanted to update people who got laid off from EPAM Systems and EPAM Anywhere
Layoffs again this week at 72LA. A few weeks ago at MAL. Is the LA market ok or is it just hitting big agencies?
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
When does everyone think this spell of shittiness in the tech sector will end? Everyone around me (inc me ) are struggling in jobs they hate/company culture that sucks or layoffs and the jobs prospects are equally as bad.
Is being “iced out” a thing? Is it new? I keep seeing references to it in posts, and the claim is that partners actively stop giving work to an otherwise decent associate in order to use their low hours to justify the layoff. The crazy part is that I’m even seeing some people claim that V5 firms are doing it. Can this be true? What is the logic behind that? I personally think it sounds like a reach.
Anyone who got laid off at Droga?
Hey! Any Google folks know if it’s possible to negotiate fully remote if a contract role is hybrid? Personally, I don’t want to relocate and go to the office on a contract role given the current economy. Plus, I’m assuming contractors are the first to go in layoffs. I just think it’s a fair trade off if I’d be allowed to work fully remote. I’m also trying to have flexibility to manage my Airbnb business in a different country. Same time zone as the home office if I’d travel weeks at a time.
Have there actually been any US layoffs? I have heard this should not happen til next month.

I‘m moving to Australia with my partner and we don’t have a bank account and credit cards yet.

Hey folks, I have a scheduled VO next week for team 1, while at the same time received another VO invitation after screening with design manager of team 2 in the same company. Should I let them know the case of parallel VOs? This is one of the biggest tech company in west coast and I was surprised they don't do team match for design roles, instead they reach out to candiates after initial screening and have separate VOs...

Pivoted careers and spiteful people in my new job keep telling me I’m underqualified and shouldn’t be here and that I was a bad hiring decision. Tips to stop this from feeding my imposter syndrome? I do think there’s a learning curve and I’m not fooling myself - I know nothing beats experience. But I’m willing to work hard and learn and not arrogant. Maybe the general practice wouldn’t be to hire someone with my lack of experience for this position, but I’m here and not going anywhere, so!
