Making sense of being let go and moving forward from it - Help
Was let go a few weeks ago and back on the interview circuit but still having a hard time making sense of being let go. As I move forward into my future seat, I want to move past the pain and am looking to process these negative emotions.
I'm not going to get into the intricate details of my situation but rather want to start a discussion for those who have been here before. Outside of analyzing my situation, a common pattern that seems to exist from the threads of previous threads on the topic is, the signs are on the wall but you don't necessarily see it coming.
In PE/IB there is 0 room for error. An insane amount of attention to detail is required and the expectation is perfection at all times. What also seems to be a common theme is when management has made a decision about an individual, there is no turning back. The decision has been made and even if improvement is evident, that person is going to be whacked.
I am selfishly posting to move forward but I also hope this thread will serve as a pillar of catharsis for those who are currently in this situation, have been before, or might (unfortunately) find themselves here in the future.
