Description: For those in the early stages of their careers – with birth years of 1980 through 1996 – the COVID-19 virus has introduced them to their third recession. The CBC interviewed three Canadians in this category to get some perspective and advice. One of those interviewed, Jessica Moorhouse, transitioned from an educational background in film into a career providing financial counseling. One important perspective she provides: “It’s the first time it’s happened to you, but not the first time in history.”
