Friend was an entry level Research Assistant at a biotech startup, who just got fired for making a rookie mistake. Company was completely toxic, and often took verbal abuse from his manager.

He’s extremely anxious that he won’t be able to find another job due to being fired. Any advice you guys could give him? Will it be difficult to find his next job? Thanks 🐠

What was the mistake?

I’m sure he’ll be fine. It’d help if he had someone at the company on his side or could vouch for him in some way but if it’s early in his career, it’s easier to bounce back from a mistake like that

Does he have another person at that company who can serve as a reference - he doesn’t need his boss to serve as the reference. I would love to know the name of the startup if you feel you can share. I have found that these startups are especially toxic bc the people running them have little to no experience
