Question for everyone out there, I am a business analyst and thinking about exploring new career opportunities. What are the thoughts of the job market right now for folks who are currently employed? Is it smart to try and look for a new job right now in this climate, or should I wait it out until post Covid? I feel like I might be one of the first ones let go if I go elsewhere, and I know that many people are looking for jobs due to Covid related layoffs.

Does anyone else feel concerned that once the fed raises rates and inflation falls or stagnates, Milbank scale will remain but the current associate’s market will not? The incremental risk of being laid off is not worth an extra $10-20k imo.

Has anyone quit their job and travelled the world for a long period of time? Any things I should think about (stuff like travel health insurance or other tips)?

Suffering from crippling work related anxiety lately. Have always found this job stressful at times but with wfh the anxiety is constant and paralyzing and unbearable. I have regular panic attacks, question everything I do, feel like I’m never doing a good enough job and am really down on myself. Part of this I’m sure is that I live by myself and am alone with my thoughts all day, part is that I’m new to the manager role. Any coping strategies??
