Never! I've heard of people getting jobs 3-6 months following a lay off. Keep LinkedIn as is and use references from a different job.

Freelancing for the win!

Always! I actually did a conference in front of all my colleagues explaining how and why I've been laid off every job I've ever had.

Say you drank your weight in bourbon and now you're ready for work. They'll laugh and think you're joking... then gracefully say, "no seriously, I was freelancing.. but im ready for something different." Gets'em every time.

I’m 23. I was fired from my job. My boyfriend is neglectful and I think I kind of hate him. My roommate keeps on having people over to our apartment in the middle of a pandemic, but I’m too conflict avoidant to say anything. I feel like I’m falling apart.

Who has negotiated their severance package at time of hire? If so, what were you able to successfully negotiate? I never thought about doing this before but recently learned I should have been doing it all along, before accepting an offer (especially for an industry notoriously stingy with severance).

Feeling super discouraged. I’m pretty average IQ wise, but I’ve always been able to get ahead by working harder/longer than others. (e.g. I raised my ACT score for 29 to 35 by taking 30+ practice tests, and got into MBB on my second try by doing 50+ mock interviews.) But now that I’m at MBB I feel like working hard isn’t enough. I feel like to succeed here you have to be lightning fast at picking stuff up and executing tasks, and that’s just not me.
