Sending you virtual hug. Please take care of yourself. Eat and sleep well. Exercise. Keep in touch w family and friends. Times are tough and it’ll probably get even more tougher before things start looking better. Wish you good luck. Alternatively, happy to submit you in our referral system, if you’re interested. I hear we have put a hold on experienced hires. So unclear how much of a help that would be.

yes EY has a hold on experienced hires now. I was in the process and they told me to hold off for some time

Your concerns are real. Take care of yourself and explore online training and skills videos to keep your skills sharp.

Thanks! I’m using this time to re-evaluate the direction I want to go and what I need to learn /understand to get there.

You are not alone. It won’t be easy but something will come your way and mine (same boat). What do you want to do next? Who can you connect with within your network? Who is in their network that you admire or at a company you want to work at? What companies or roles intrigue you? Make lists. Set a few goals for yourself per week to network. Take classes to keep your skills up or to upskill. And do one fun thing every week if you can. It will be ok I promise!

Can u DM me

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
