Anyone have experience moving from agency to I’m-house or brand side? I was just let go from Edelman & it was my 2nd lay-off in 2 years and my 3rd agency. I’m worried if I look at another agency (if they’re even hiring) that I’ll get laid off again. I was an SAE. Any advice is welcome!

Hi guys,
Recently just interviewed for a finance role at google. I can say for certain it didn’t go well as far as the theoretical questions went.
With that being said, is there a certain cool off period I have to wait before interviewing again? The reason I ask is id like to use some down time I have to start networking and position myself for another chance.
