Try to get a new job before year end. Don’t tell future employers that you have been laid off. Start immediately working for a new position. The market is great right now. Good luck.

Non compete is for if it’s the same industry. I’m not in consulting I’m back office for buyside. I could start earlier if I pivoted industries or depending on the role/firm

How’d you get laid off!? I’ve been trying and on the bench for a few months and can’t get let go

Not sure what kind of roles you’re looking for but post in the accounting bowl asking for referrals. It’s a great way to get a direct link to a job you’re interested in and they’ll also coach you up to prep for the interview. You’ll have an offer in no time.
