Was laid off in Sept. Unfortunately we will be seeing many more coming. It's what happens in a recession. Unfortunately I now also have my age against me. Not in a mentally good place at the moment.

Not sure what to say but you could consider removing your graduation year from LinkedIn and your resume if you have not already done so. Hope you recover soon and find a good position!

What do you guys think about firms who use remote/online IT tech companies for their it needs versus having IT staff inhouse. I once worked for a small CPA which laid off it's small IT staff in favor of an outsourced remote/online IT solution. That tax season, the network crashed several times and it was awful. After tax season, the firm rehired the same group of people it had fired and halted it's remote IT help.

RE has slowed down IMO. Still some work in multifamily and new construction/development (and workouts/restructurings/foreclosures), but hotels, office, retail not doing great at the moment for obvious reasons. Have heard of multiple layoffs, but not mass layoffs yet, and I don’t think we’re going to mass layoffs since this is clearly a temporary pandemic related issue.

Would love to hear from others on what they’re seeing in RE. Please share your geographic market/firm size/relevant info.

Which sales role would would YOU rather have? Be honest..

1. 200k working 30-35 hours a week

Think of these as different roles and how many hours the job takes to be successful in it to make that amount in your W2. Working more will not make you more and working less gets your fired.
