I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted.

I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Hi all, Finally COVID-19 caught up with me. Not health-wise but career wise. I was laid off and am looking for a job.

I have a total experience of around 4 years of which close to 2.5 years are in the consulting space. I intend to continue my career in the same line i.e as a consultant. Please let me know if there are any relevant openings.

Honestly being laid off sounds pretty good as a staff working 65 hours a week 🤷‍♂️ would be making more money doing nothing.
