I have actively been applying for jobs for around a month or so now.
Its hard to dedicate time in after hours with wife and kids and all.
I try to actively connect, maybe it's good or maybe not but after applying, finding connections related to the post on LI and trying to make a direct impression.
I find myself mass-applying often while at work. Not ideal but things are pretty awful where I am currently.
Interviews are tricky because we are mandatory in the office for 95% of the current gig.
Any tips in general other than just keep slinging the resume out there?
It's a struggle to keep activity up when you know you are trying to head out. How do you who have switched out of a bad gig manage "metrics"?
Do you give it your all and only apply outside of work hours with new interviews as needed?
Do you mix your KPIs with 20% real work/effort and 80% fluffier metrics?
Not posting about it on LI because I don't want to raise the alarm internally.
