I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I was laid off in April due to Covid related business losses. I still haven’t found a position. Is this normal? I declined an in-house offer last month but am beginning to get a little panicked. Thoughts?

I think that’s normal, I’ve been seeing people here on FB saying they were laid off in March and still looking. I’m sorry this is happening to you but like everything what goes down must come up. Good luck.

uplifting

You arent alone i was also laid off and 0 prospects i started taking on per diem work and it has been a positive in keeping me sane and not feeling like a total failure! Feel free to pm to chat :)

I looked while working for a year, nothing over $65k - lots of second and third-round interviews, but really nothing worth while cold. It’s tough

2017 grad so technically a 4th year. Lateraled to a CRE boutique in NYC that’s a major player. Learned quickly that my experience/knowledge/organization is not up to par (was a COG in the machine at prior firm). Just had EOY review and, though positive sounding, they’re dropping me to a 3rd year to ensure I’m not billing as a 4th year and able to do the work to learn/get up to par. I feel pretty okay about it (market salary deduction notwithstanding), but want to make sure I’m not being naive.
