Q: Is it easier to find a job in a law firm if one’s last job ended voluntarily or involuntarily? My current firm was already having financial problems, and layoffs were already looming, before a rainmaker, in a different practice area than mine, recently announced her departure.

As layoffs look likely, and as I am already exhausted from months of overwork, from the perspective of finding a new job, is it best to quit and take time off or be cut? Thank you.
