Wait

Wait. Or try to find a new gig at another firm before you get cut from current one. With the hiring spree going on it might not be too hard and would likely happen pretty quickly

Curious what you blew up so badly that makes you worthy of getting fired in these market conditions

Awesome! Appreciate it

Let go as in being fired for performance

For those who said wait - do you mind share your rational?

From what I understand reasons for terminations don’t show up on background screens so you don’t really have to outwardly tell people “i got fired for poor performance”. Can spin it a bit if someone directly asks. So I’d say wait, get the severance, avoid having to pay back any signing bonuses or anything, etc.
