25M I’m having a hard time not beating myself up over missteps in my career. I had the opportunity to join a solid Venture Capital firm but chose to join a startup only to get laid off 6 months in. Feel very disappointed in my judgement.

You’re young and took a risk with bigger upside that didn’t work out. I know it sucks but no need to kick yourself for picking one over job over another. We all make choices in our life that we regret. You never know what might have happened at the venture capital firm. It’s all a bunch of what if’s now.

Thanks. Appreciate the kind words. It still sucks lol

Hey Guys. Regarding the forced layoffs in PS. It’s high time we unite and hit them back. I’ll request all people who’ll receive the video connect email from PS to do one important thing. Use a a pen camera or a hidden camera(small) in your pocket before attending the call and record the call and events. These peoples should not be spared. Try to get some evidence and let’s expose to public media and other legal teams. You can do this anonymously thereby saving others from this crap.

Feeling so down right now…I spent months trying to get into a tech company. And when I finally got in, I was then laid off two months into the job. This past month, I applied to 300+ jobs and had 30+ interviews. None of them led to offers due to hiring freezes or internal hires. I just went through 10 interviews with a non-tech company and I don’t know if I will get an offer. I am just so tired of everything. If anyone knows of any PM roles (hardware/software), please let me know. YOE: 2
