Creatives who got laid off. What are you doing now?

I’ll loose my job soon due to covid and live at the other side of the world so flying back home is not an option. I’m ok staying here as the city is amazing but all agencies have a hiring freeze until the end of the year.
I need to make money. I also need to get my head around the situation. Any inspirational suggestions would be helpful and much appreciated.

If you have a bit of money saved you can take the opportunity to learn a new skill (motion,3d,and so on). Give it a couple of months to reevaluate if you stay put or move back home. I’ve seen recruiters from asia posting about openings in the area ✨

First, a few questions. What city? How do you know you’ll lose your job soon? Are you here on a work visa or are you a permanent resident / citizen?

like

I’m in Tokyo and have a work visa and can stay here a few more years before I need to renew.

I’m guessing, like me, your visa is tied to your agency and you can’t do another job, nor get a new visa right now even if you did find an employer?

I still have work but can’t find another job or leave the country to get a new visa then return, if needed... I’m ok, just wary and showing my worth.
