It’s not the end of the world. Take a day or two to decompress and then pick up the job search again.

Mind sharing why you got fired?
That may help put things in perspective

May have hired my replacement that the boss really liked. Just really toxic environment as well. Bit of a well funded startup with founder issues

Happened to me as well. Jumped into industry only to discover some things were falsified about the startup culture during interviews. When I pointed this out, they let me go within the 90 day HR window. Dusted off the network machine, and got a new gig 1 month later. It’s been 10 times better than the startup.

Happens, it’s happened to me. What’s meant to be will be. Grow and learn from it and don’t give up on yourself. What’s your game plan

Okay, as long as it’s not a ethical or other related issue you are fine.

At the VP level I am sure you can have a good bit of leverage in the market.

Do you have enough savings to tide through in the meantime? Any severance package ?

Happened to me a few months ago. Things are much better now. DM if you need to chat. Take a couple days to decompress before strategizing

Hi Fishes,
Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months?
I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases?

Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

It’s so hard to stay upbeat and motivated at times.
