I was laid off because of a budget cut. I’ve been working since I was 15 years old. And I’ve never been laid off before. I know it will take me some time to find a new job in the Communications/Marketing world. Part of me feels depressed and useless. The other part of me feels optimistic and is trying to see this time as a way to explore other outlets that I couldn’t with a full-time job.
In this market and in my field it could take 4-8 months to find a job.
What would you all do if you had 4-8 months off, beside applying for jobs everyday on Indeed.com?
