I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead.

I got laid off from my accounting/consulting firm in January and have since been taking a class related to my industry but from a tech angle.

For people that were laid off last year or have been job searching for a few months, how are you staying optimistic and dealing with the interview fatigue?
