Firm (boutique ) just announced a firm-wide reduction to 3 days a week (it was either that or massive layoffs). I’m very scared about the future, I love consulting very much and can’t imagine exiting, any suggestions on:
1. What to do with the extra time
2. How to find a consulting gig in the current times
3. Anyone willing to chat for career advice
Thank you all 🐠🐟 for being such a supportive community

I was laid off by my company in Nov 2021 after getting my green card approved in Sept 2021. I just got a new job and planning to go back to my home country for a long overdue visit. Will CBP give me a hard time for re-entry when i get back to the States?
More layoffs at publicis today. Every few days they let go of a few more. Infuriating and scary. Why wouldn’t they just do it at once instead of making everyone who works there terrified? Messed up
