If I got laid off, can my friends at other firms submit me for a referral bonus to be hired as an experienced associate/staff? Or is the entire point to poach from direct competitors?

A referral is a referral, regardless of your employment situation.

Of course, yes. One of my friends got laid off from EY recently and he had a Deloitte interview lined up soon after, through a referral. Stay strong, OP! You'll get through this.

Yup 😢 Friend at EY was wondering if he could submit me for a referral

Sorry OP! Bonus aside, I'm sure folks here as well can refer you as well. I saw someone else create a dummy email id and share it here for others to contact them.

Why'd you get laid off if you mind sharing?

Agree with @A2

^ OP said "If"

Wait, OP, you did get laid off? Damn, sorry to hear that. I thought this was a hypothetical situation, my bad.

Sorry OP! Follow D2 suggestion and you'll be referred to several firms. Good luck 🍀

*edit* what part of FS? I was considering making a switch to one of those groups

@PwC 1 across levels and across practices. Primarily banking is the rumor but no one is safe. There are at least 10 different posts on fishbowl from the past couple weeks discussing this in detail if you're truly interested

@OP Thanks I'll check. I've been talking to a partner that pulled me to support a staff aug project, and this would be a bit of a plot twist

PwC 1 - if you are located in a top FS market, that could make sense. Though, I do know people who were cut from NYC.

Yea I'm NYC

Got laid off 4 weeks ago from a crumbling start up, though walked away with a decent package. Took a couple days to process and finally registered my own design consulting business (which was the main reason for switching to the in-house start up role I got laid off from in the first place).

I am lucky to have landed on a few clients now, working half the billable hours I used to but making more than before and no one to report to. But the fear of not having the next client line up is so real!
