Laid off as ASO1 - What Next?
Started at a growing fund in NYC a few months ago. Was told a couple days ago I would be laid off due to lack of fit. Honestly came as a pretty big shock, but things happen and life moves on.
Currently taking care of a homeless / mentally ill family member which is sucking up $2k / month in therapy + rent + living expenses. Not sure what to do next - would like to stay in PE but not sure how to frame my experience and the layoff.
Old team are willing to provide reference and help me find a new role but not sure what that actually means.
If anyone has any advice or has been in a similar situation anything would be helpful.
