Sorry but it sounds like the universe removed you from a soul sucking experience. Focus on resting and rejuvenating and then hit the market again. You’ll be just fine.

Sounds like you’ve escaped a terrible situation. If you can swing it, treat yourself to a week away somewhere warm or exciting. Recharge and remember what it feels like to be happy.

Getting pushed out of a sweat shop was the best thing that ever happened to me. In retrospect I was obviously miserable and they probably knew it wasn’t the right fit before I did. Good luck! But if you’re able take a nice break before starting the search again.

Tell me you're super old without telling me your age. I joined Price Waterhouse before it merged with Coopers & Lybrand. PW had an advertisement for management consults in what was then MCS (the part later sold to IBM) in the Sunday New York Times. I was living in NYC then. I clipped out the ad from the newspaper and walked a few blocks over to Kinkos and had them fax my resume over. A few days later I got a phone call from them on my home phone. They left a message on my answering machine
