Haven't been in the market for nearly 5 years. My goodness how things have changed.
Roles fill fast, everyone's process sucks, and competition is HOT.
Hottest competition i've ever experienced. Feels like so many people have been laid off the past year, and now businesses are hiring them all back. Which means lots of talented people getting in demand jobs.
It sucks. Hard to differentiate yourself these days.
I've used pictures of myself smiling holding clever signs.
I've used Loom.
I've cold called, linkedin DM'd, emailed. Got myself an Apollo account.
But it's TOUGH.
