1. Becoming increasingly common. 2. 0 .. thankfully 3. Never. Every fall is but an opportunity to rise up. Cliched but reality is, we pick up a lot of useful skills as consultants and have the ability to conform to and do a good job of many roles which makes us capable to a larger set of roles we can apply for.. just my thought.. I’m sure there will be some people who disagree but that’s okay.. 😂

NYC fish! Need some advice. I recently got laid off at my firm but am thankfully making it to the final rounds of another great firm. The only catch is that they're no longer hiring for the NYC office, only Philly and Princeton. Any thoughts or advice? The firm is tentatively staying remote until April but I think that could change given that cases are rising. Sincerely, a stressy depressy consultant
