Moved here for an opportunity. The "agency" focus is on sports and the first round of layoffs happened this past week. I dont plan to stay to see myself and my department laid off. Wondering where should I go next, Ive got plenty of experience and I'm more than happy to send my book if needed. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I know a lot of people are upset today with comp coming out and I don’t want to be insensitive but I finally crossed the 6-figure line! I know a lot of people will laugh at this goal but I wanted to make 6-figures before 30 (I am 29). As a 2nd generation American, I wanted this goal for all the sacrifices my parents made to leave their homes and families to give me the opportunity that the US provides!
