31: Bullying | F*ck That

In our first episode of our F*ck That series, Carrie tells us about the time where she was mercilessly bullied in school and how she dealt with it… and we touch briefly on where the bully is now. (Spoiler alert: she may be a few fries short of a happy meal - and she’s still pretty mean).

30: The Good, The Bad, The Interview

Since we’ve talked a lot about layoffs and job searching quite a bit since the pandemic broke out and unemployment shot through the roof, we decided to continue that thread with an episode on the dreaded job interview!

27: Laid Off: What Comes Next

We are revisiting our conversation about layoffs — from the humiliating to the humane. Either way, it’s what comes next that’s usually the hardest part. We follow up this conversation by talking Nicole (and hopefully some listeners) through some good next steps to take after being laid off. We break down resumes (add a pic or not?), LinkedIn profile photos (bikini or no bikini?), and cover letters (just UGH), as well as a few other necessary evils of job hunting.
