Hey all- I recently got laid off as an analyst due to large COVID cuts. Looking to make ends meet. Was supporting deal leads plan and manage projects (financials, resource mngmt, etc) and relationship mngmt between firm leadership and IT startups as well - both work I loved. Since I had <1 YOE in consulting (recent PSU grad), looking to get advice on how to move forward. Have ~1 YOE PM work in FS/healthcare tech prior to A. Friends tell me to get SCRUM certs. Open to any advice and thoughts!
