It’s been 5 months since I was laid off and it’s starting to really eat at me. It feels hopeless some days. I know I’m not alone, but wow this sucks.

I’m sorry to hear that and I hope it gets better for you. You are definitely not alone, but don’t let that diminish your own feelings. I am starting to feel hopeless as well after my layoff. Having trouble landing freelance and seeing people get hired at my level at the same places I’m trying to get into just makes it worse. Happy to chat about things if you think that would help, feel free to DM me. We will get through this and be better for it in time.

I can SO IDENTIFY with this feeling. It’s tough when you keep getting no response or “we aren’t hiring right now” but then seeing others hired. I feel you. Thank you for this. It helps!

Feel ya. And I been there. Totally sucks. My advice? Get offline more often. Do productive stuff that makes you feel good. Maybe that’s going for a run? Maybe that’s doing laundry? Try to limit your job hunting to times when you can focus. Also know that it’s just a numbers game. People are terrible. But someday a person won’t be and then you’ll have a job. Keep at it. Take regular breaks. Know that you are in no way alone.

I’ve been considering going back to school to become a therapist, and I was recently laid off so I’m thinking about doing it now (instead of finding another HR job and waiting). (Continued…)

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.
