No, it’s not layoffs...we’re just adjusting efficiencies to better serve our clients’ needs. We’re evolving, getting younger, leaner, more agile. Streamlining operations!

Advice Needed: Last month I was laid off from work, however, since have been able to secure another position with another firm (located 90 minutes from my house in a more rural part of the state) doing real estate closings. Aside from the commute and the work (not incredibly fulfilling or challenging) the job is fine. I do consider myself incredibly fortunate to be employed during these challenging times. Do I aggressively continue my job search or wait until the beginning of the year?
