Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...

Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?

I was laid off because they didn’t have enough work for me (despite assurances that it was all fine, no plans for layoffs etc). Since found a new job and it’s been slow, and my requests for work seem to be going into the ether. I know rationally it’s too soon to panic but I can’t get past that anxiety of being laid off again due to lack of work. Anyone been through this? How do you get your confidence back? (My work is my life. I don’t have much non-work stuff to focus on, which doesn’t help.)
