Recently lost my job out of nowhere. No pip, no warning, just thrown out on my butt. I am so worried about how I am going to pay my bills and when I will get another job. Just today, 8 rejections. I swear this industry is so broken and overcrowded as I am sure they didn't even look at my application. Most job postings are for senior devs. I am not a senior. I don't have senior experience. I am so lost and stressed.

So I'm in interview portal of Accenture India. My interview is scheduled from 10:00 to 11:00 but no interviewer has turned up yet. And apparently they've given hr email id as point of contact. Have mailed the HR, it's been 15min already. I think I'll log off. Anyone having similar experience??
