Hey all, Been out of work for about a year now, been interviewing and actively since being laid off due to companys budget cut. Was in final / decision rounds before covid and everything has been tbd or rescinded since. Responses have been few and far in between and now the year gap is becoming a concern. Would like to ask if anyone has tips or can point me in the right direction. I come from a management consulting/prod mgt background in tech. Disregard the risk consultant title.

For those that are depressed and struggling in the agency world. I made it through 5 forced hospital visits including being forcibly tied to a bed twice just for talking a little too fast, after being fired for being gay, and now I have my own venture. It does get better. You will get better. Your life is not worth the grind. You have worth. Here's art therapy I did for months to feel better. I hope it helps create some understanding of the seriousness of mental illness in the industry.

Got laid off about 8 weeks ago. I’ve interviewed with multiple companies, but have not received any offers. I’m starting to get anxious about my career. If anyone got an offer, can you please share some insights on what helped or didn’t help secure a role? Maybe job leads, resume/interview tips. Thank you!!

What will rebounding after COVID look like? After layoffs, office closures etc. How long could it take to break back in now that networking opportunities have changed, offices are remote, hiring and positions open are limited in comparison to the numbers let go? How realistically will people not be able to reclaim a job in this industry? How long is too long of gap due to COVID and will companies ie (young recruitment teams who are naive) overlook thise gaps due to the economy?
