Background: Been with two big 4 firms for total of 3 years ( audit senior for one year.) just got laid off 2 weeks ago. I’m also in the army reserve, and about to go on one year mission next month to support Covid. Does this one year gap of not working impact my job searching opportunities once I got back from the deployment?

To my Deloitte colleagues: I just returned from maternity leave, and while I’m very grateful I was able to stay home with baby for 6 months I’m really anxious about returning and my utilization (50% now). Our RM is really slow and says we have a lot of new projects but hasn’t assigned me to one. I am doing trainings but not billing, and I don’t believe I’ll be staffed next week or the next either. Have reached out to a partner for extra work but haven’t heard back. Afraid I’ll get fired.
