So sorry to hear. Remember what your brand is and stay strong! I can also offer a D referral- what is your skill set? What types of specialties are you interested in (or great at)? Let me know if I can help!

People, it’s ok to say sorry but let’s offer to help the best we can as well. OP, what firm did you work at? If you need any referral this is my strategy. Find a position at the Deloitte website and ensure you have met all listed requirements for that role. Make sure your resume reflects all the listed requirements for the role. Send me your resume. I will refer you, send your resume to the recruiter, and send the recruiter a Skype message on your behalf. This is provided the previous firm isn’t Deloitte. I pray this experience turns out to be an uncommon blessing for you, meaning your next role will be way better.

What is the best way to get fired and still be eligible for unemployment? fwiw- I am not lazy and looking for a free ride, just a safety net in case it takes a bit to find something new. (hoepfully it won't even be needed) I also have savings but don't want to deplete my progress. Today was over the top with the politics and I am just over it. I am burnt out and have no room for extra bs and just trying to make it to retirement.

Would you choose an investment job at a private, partner-owned long only fund where you’re guaranteed to never lose your job& can be a multimillionaire; or at a very top L/S HF where the bottom performers are fired each year, but you could make multimillions in a good year? Another related q, would you forego the offer at the first place to potentially get the offer at the second place, knowing it’s very competitive?
