I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

5 years ago I had a crush on a girl. Things were so different then; we used to hang out, talking about things which were utterly random and I loved watching her smile. I ultimately fell for her and we started dating. I spent the best time of my life with her. 1 year ago today, I lost her to COVID. Still, cannot get over her. Looking at the desperation in this bowl, I just want to say - hope you find the one, but this is not the right way. Desperation doesn't appeal anyone.
