Have spent years building my career and moved to Canada 2 yrs back.

Because of my hire date last year I wasn’t reviewed in last summer’s annual review cycle. My firm cut everyone’s salary by 25% in March and made major layoffs and more are coming.

I work exclusively with nonprofits and my current salary is not sustainable. Are consulting firms that deal with for profits also suffering like this?

I was interviewed for a role with a bank almost 3 months back. Till date I havent heard back on the outcome. Do you think it makes sense now to drop a note to one of the interviewers to get an update?
