I don't know but I left banking a few months ago for a job I hate and it's been hard to get banking interviews. I'm guessing it'd be even harder if I'd been canned.

My friend was laid off early this year and as far as I know he still hasn't found another gig

What don't you like about it? I thought the grass was supposed to be greener!

I have a few friends/ex-coworkers who got laid off (oh well you know, DB) and most of them are way happier at their new job now. Some stayed in banking and some took the corporate path.

I was very successful as an internaional sales exec at a startup for 15 years before we were bought by a large publicly traded company. The culture shift was dramatic, as was the way that I was expected to work. I was laid off a tortuous 3 years after the buyout.

While I was in some ways relieved (put me out of my misery!) I spiralled pretty hard and after a while started working PT jobs, gig type stuff, etc. while I figured things out, and healed from burnout.

Unpopular opinion - Getting fired/let go is a great thing since it will teach you to be more prepared in the future, your job is never 100% safe, you get reminded you are an employee so no need to overwork, you get to find a better job, once you get back on your feet you won’t fear getting fired/let go anymore since you’ve already went through it and found another job!

I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)
