Sep updates - finding new jobs, loaded up SRS + OA on Endowus

This month has been rather unpleasant.

2022 probably isn't a good year for me. I look at my past posts and it's generally negative. Perhaps the macro environment affected me personally.


I was complaining last month that I've subscribed to quiet quitting. Due to some changes at work, it made me see things clearer - that my boss sucks, the role is not gaining me any skillsets, and I need to move.

So I started applying for jobs. Rather aggressively. So far, I've submitted 26 applications, got called up for 5 and got into 2nd round for 4. 

I wonder if I should wait for my end year bonus. But I'm also doubtful whether I'd get any bonus. I don't feel my boss appreciates my work enough and I may well get 0. 

However, I figured I should just see what leads me and decide one step at a time. It doesn't seem to be a good time to find jobs now. What's more, I've been hearing layoff news and this means the job market will be inundated with younger unemployed folks fighting for the limited pool. 

I can only pray for myself.
