I just completed my first year at a small investment bank and was recently told that I have about two months to find a new job. Due to special circumstances, the firm was willing to help me out and will continue to say that I am employed at the firm for the next two months.
What do you all recommend that I do in order to find a job within this period? Should I just aim to apply to any finance position so that I do not become officially unemployed? I am very worried that I will not be able to find a job in the next two months given I've heard it takes a long time for firms to officially extend offers to and hire experienced workers. I am also very worried that it will be much harder to find a new job if I am officially unemployed.
I graduated from a target school with a high GPA a year ago. I know where things went wrong and will make sure that doesn't happen again at my new job. I am actively applying to a variety of financial job postings through company's careers sites (IB, Corporate Finance, etc.) and networking with employees (and alumni where I can) to secure an interview.
Really appreciate any advice you all can give me here. Thank you.
