What practice!?! Did you get severance?

Bummer dude. Take a breath, clear your head, and form a plan about how you will get your next gig. Friend of mine was laid off in the great S&O massacre at Deloitte. Took her 1.5-2 months to get through the interview process to start at Pwc.

Kinda freaking out now, how low was your utilization OP?

@disagree with EY8. Under utilization and performance are two completely different issues. Don't blame the laid off person cause sometimes the work is just not there and OP had plenty of utilization in 2017.

I was stressed when I was laid off. In retrospect, the worry was a waste of energy. Relax. Decide what you want to do next. Work to get a better job. Five years from now, this won't even register in your memory. But really--relax and enjoy the free time.

I am at a point in my job search (2+ years, laid off 5 months before COVID) where I’m really starting to think the career I have chosen doesn’t want me back.
