How to negotiate severance after being let go from my job.

I was unexpectedly let go from my job yesterday. I’ve only been there 4 months, and it was quite a surprise.

Occupation shifts over time

I'd like to visualize shifts in employment between occupations in the United States from the end of WWII to the present. Here is a (rather poor) example of the the sort of thing I have in mind. OES data seems like the obvious choice, but the BLS specifically cautions against using it. Is there better data available? I'm mostly interested in broad shifts due to technical change (i.e. the emergence of the software industry, the decline in manufacturing employment).

Job application anxiety and disappointment

At the beginning of this year I finished my courses and exams to become an emergency medical technician. I finally have the certification I that allows me to work in the field, but I’m fighting against paralyzing anxiety that’s making it hard to apply for jobs. This is something that I've struggled with the past, but the stakes feel a lot higher this time and I’m looking for advice on how to proceed. [more inside]

Should I leave my job and go on SSDI?

I'm 44 and was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer several months ago. For 7 years, I've been the communications director of a small nonprofit. My ED has been incredibly kind in granting me extended sick leave, paying my full salary and benefits for the past three months while I went through chemo. Despite his generosity, I have been long planning to leave and don't want to go back to work at this organization. My job does not offer any kind of short or long term disability, but according to the SS website, the diagnosis of stage 4 cancer automatically qualifies me for SSDI benefits. Do I leave this job and go on SSDI while recovering and preparing to transition to another field? [more inside]

Transitioning from academia back to a former job

I'm coming to think that, while I don't hate academia, I'm beginning to like it less and less and have apprehensions about continuing through to my dissertation. I'm in my second year of the PhD program, and have a masters with practical application in the field that I was working in before deciding to continue on to my PhD. The place where I was working, a public library, is now hiring for a position similar to the one that I was in before I left. Typically my master's degree would command a higher salary, and I think I would probably need a little bit more than what they're offering to live comfortably and start paying down my extant debt accrued during my masters (I'm not taking on any new loans, thankfully). I left on great terms, and feel like a really strong candidate for the job with the skills I've gained in the interim, but would only be able to take it with slightly higher salary than they offer now. I loved this job, and it's looking more and more appealing compared to my current experience in academia. What steps should I take to contact the HR department of the library system to a) let them know that I'm interested and suss out how interested they might be in me, and b) talk about flexibility in salary?

What is the best way to ask for pay when my employer takes vacation?

(Posting on behalf of a friend and sending them a link to the thread. I can relay updates as needed). I am a nanny caring for a three-year old in the Boston area. The family I currently work for is leaving for two weeks during Christmas vacation. I expect that I won't work during that time and I won't get paid. I would've requested the first week off anyway because I am traveling with my family. but the second week I would have chosen to work had they been here. Is it fair for me to ask for compensation for the second week? If so, can you recommend how I can word this request so it doesn't sound like a demand? I've been writing it down and talking it out and I can't seem to come up with the right words.

Slowing down the pace

After a successful 20-year career in IT and hitting middle age, I find myself ready to slow down to a potentially unrelated job which has a more leisurely pace and does not require on-call work. While I've resisted burnout over the years, the late nights, bug fixes and fire drills inherent to many different types of DevOps positions like I've been in - spanning hands-on, project management and department management positions at different employers - have really started to get me down. I could afford to take a pay cut, and maybe, in a few years, move. If you've successfully moved from IT or software development into a job that guarantees your phone won't ring late at night, what have you done?
