SCON - Been on a project but non billable since I joined in late June (don’t ask -politics) got sent a meeting invite from PPMD with no context for Friday morning. Assuming worst, how to nav. (Contd)

This is crazy, but I’d say upon joining you realized the traveling lifestyle wasn’t for you. Additionally, if they are letting you go during this meeting know this is not your fault. 4 months is a crazy short amount of time to judge performance

Campus hires and experienced hires are two different things. Most firms invest into campus hires, and they come at lower cost. If you’re already claiming to be a skilled person, expectations are different.

I’ve seen people lasting anywhere from 3 months to 9 months. There are multiple factors which go in to such decisions.

Let’s hope the meeting is only for warning, or even better for an opportunity.

How to navigate a job search with a current/last role of only four months? Again, assuming the worst, what’s the move in this situation?

Agreed - could be totally not your fault but you can just focus on your story and past performance elsewhere

You could also be wrong about the intent of the meeting!

Agree with Deloitte 1 - stay positive!

So what happened?

I got laid off. Going back to my old industry job (don’t burn bridges, people!) in two weeks.
