Block off time on your calendar twice a week for 2 hours when you have a clear head and can apply to jobs, tailoring your resume to each.

Tailor your resume for each role you are applying for and even consider a cover letter. You can write more of a framework of a cover letter and then tailor it for each role to save time. Each application definitely takes more time this way but it is what will get you the most quality roles. I'm sorry about your tough environment, but you have the right frame of mind and dedication to stay focused and get in a better situation.

I feel this coming from a unhealthy and abusive family… I enjoyed living with roommates more than living with them. Could you swing a roommate situation? Also the folks above are giving good advice. Try to fit in some career fairs (lol if those still exist) during your “lunch break”.

Try working from the library or a quiet cafe, if you can.

Hey folks. 3 YOE, working in tech at a great company, and making 135K TC in Austin.

Have an admit at Columbia and received 30K in aid each year, so I anticipate paying 110K in tuition. With cost of living in upper Manhattan, estimating an additional 35K each year, so 180K total cost.

I want to stay in tech post MBA, but explore faang companies and product roles. Is this worth the cost? I figure I could make a jump in comp at least?
