Plan B If Laid Off Before Fulltime
With rate hikes likely causing deal volume to crash, I've been wondering whether or not I'll even get the chance to start my FT offer in July, and this makes me worried whether or not I'll even be able to stay in finance.
I know that earlier threads say that in 08/09, analysts were able to simply rerecruit months down the line and reenter finance.
However, my FT offer is at a MM that isnt terribly well known. This scares me into thinking that if, there's no lower rung that will scoop me up. As an extreme example, if you get laid off from Goldman, BGL will still hire you. But if you get laid off from BGL, is there any hope to ever return to finance?
Am I going to have to completely give up on finance and do something like law school to get back on the same level of career payoff? Can't focus on anything and every little thing I hear about thefeel like I just wasted 4 years of my life.
