Just found out today that my boutique consulting firm is letting me go because they decided to honor all their internship and graduate offers. I’m completely blindsided and I don’t know how to cope.

Also, I’m really sorry about this happening to you all of a sudden. You should definitely let yourself be devastated and upset for a while - it was a shock for you and it hurts and I’m sure there’s some betrayal you feel. Allow yourself to feel it. Take care of yourself slowly. Make small promises to yourself everyday. For example, promise to walk outside for even 1 min (then go up to 5,10,15). Promise to do things for your soul because you need your wellbeing to move on. And then once you’ve done both of those, slowly start getting back into focusing on your work life. Different goals for everyday 1. Update one section on your resume. 2. Update two sections on your resume. 3. Look for jobs on LinkedIn and favorite 2 everyday. 4. Apply for jobs using quick apply feature on LinkedIn. 5. Apply for one job that has a longer application. So on and so forth. feel free to DM me if you need some help trying to manage all of this by coming up with little daily promises and/or allowing yourself to just feel what you feel. I’m happy to support.

OP sorry to hear that you were laid off but looks like you’re secure financially for now. If your concern is being busy, then I’d recommend looking on volunteer or covid response org websites on offering any help you can give. There are so many small businesses and non profits that need help with their business, digital, etc and could use a hand.

tell me more, single/married? how long were you at the job for? were you the only one? did the boss say performance reasons? willing to relocate?

how are you feeling?

Devastated honestly. I just finished a high visibility project for the firm, our client signed on for longer, I thought I was safe. I’m not ready to look for new roles. The idea of interviewing is daunting considering how limited the roles are and how many people seem to be out of a job competing for the same role.
