In the S&O practice and have not been staffed since mid March. Since then been doing 50-60 hrs a week on BD (I’m a Manager for reference). Utilization was around 100% back in March currently 70%. Great reviews in Lead liked by colleagues etc. However the past few weeks have been quite depressed as I’m worried I’ll be laid off. Took a week off to take a mental break but can’t seem to relax at all (lockdown + lack of childcare isn’t helping) should I start updating my resume?

Umm from outside looking in, I’d say you’re fine. You didn’t get unstaffed until COVID started and I’m sure a lot of people at EY are unstaffed right now

I would look to be staffed on opportunities related to Covid. There are many out there. I’ve been more utilized since the lockdown than before.

Honestly the best way to look for work is to do BD. It's not that instant "I found a role" turn around, but at this time none of those roles really exist. The people who help shape and sell the work are the ones that are getting staffed on it - nothing that I've sold lately has gone otherwise and the only thing I've filled from the bench was backfilling a role from someone who left th firm (with a person that helped me with BD 6 months back).

If you have a good reputation and were staffed up until Covid you won't be the first out the door - but pipelines are weak at all firms, if this doesn't turn around a second round will come. Keeping your spirits up and continuing to find anywhere you can contribute, that's all a lot of us can do, take solace that you are in a similar situation to a significant percent of those on this forum, but I think everyone should tighten their belts and be prepared for an unpredictable year or two ahead.
