Would anyone in this bowl who's looking to find a new job be interested in being accountability buddies? I get to a point and then I get too anxious, or I feel too depressed to actively works towards applying to things. Would ask in the exit bowl, but it'd be helpful to buddy with somebody who gets it

Yes, I think that'd be a great idea! I messaged a few folks above, but given that it looks like there's a lot of people interested, very pro-accountability crew

Anyone who needs some insight or motivation feel free to hit me up. Little back story, worked for a large finance firm from 2008-2016, left to go to what I thought was my dream job around May 2016 but in reality this job was a living hell that put me in a really dark place. Left that job a year after around March 2017. Worked in contract/temp roles until July 2018, then ultimately took a job in the hospitality/bar industry from august 2018-present just to survive. I’m still working in the bar/hospitality industry while accepting another contract/temp role during covid June 2020 after being out of a finance job since July 2018. I just finally after being out of the permanent job market since March 2017, accepted a permanent FT role at the best investment banks in the world. This was an absolute nightmare and rollercoaster navigating and steering the course to hold out for what I wanted in the long run for a career so I know absolutely what everyone’s going through. Reach out with any questions or whatever I can help with.

So my issue is having developed a panic/anxiety disorder where I may be very compromised by anxiety for a minute or two especially during introductions in a presentation. I can’t logic it away because its the amygdala. 99% of time if I get past the first 3-5 min, I’m perfectly fine and confident. I’m not embarrassed by it. In an ideal world, I would introduce myself in a presentation by saying “hey if I have a little anxiety, just let me pause for a minute and feel safe” and it’s fine.
