Just as an observation, the vibe you're giving off in this thread is not great.

You say you got fired, not let go. That's a red flag.

You talk about not being good enough to apply to jobs, or not good enough for them to want you. Low confidence is a red flag to me.

You are begging for a job, but a healthcare company offers a chance and you say maybe. That's a red flag.

You come off as close to unhirable to me.

Try and be more confident.
Even if you just fake it.
And try and find a way of spinning your firing so it sounds better. Getting fired is worse than getting let go, FYI.

Agree w ACD2. You’re a bit all over the place... which is understandable. However, you should take some time for yourself. Spend at least an entire day to reflect, regroup and re-energize as you approach your search. focus.

Yeah, check out nyc too. Reach out to CDs you might know (or ones that your Memphis CDs know). People are pretty sympathetic to laid off people. You’ll be surprised who might help.

Fired or let go? What's the reason they gave you?

Idk I doubt they'd consider me having been fired from another branch but sure. Feel free to DM me

Fired isn’t the same as laid off. I’ve had friends laid off from DDB NY who landed jobs in DDB Chicago. I mean, this was when DDB Chi was winning business, but still...

Wasn't a good fit and fired Would let you know more dets via a DM if you really want to know more.

I’d you’re open minded send me your book.

I'd consider freelancing there to see if it was a good fit for me

Okay. I'm going to improve my book with my extra time

Keep your chin up. Everyone is looking for writers lately. TN has Humanaut and Tombras. Try there yet?

@ECD I kind of just want to drop by those agencies. Hummanaut is my dream! Tombras is up there too
