I was looking during Q3 and Q4 of 2020 and yes it was very difficult to get interviews. Fortunately I landed a great gig near the end of the year; relocating soon. Good luck. Keep at it.

Lookup the tittle or field you want to be in and google how to get certificates and/or classes that will tailor your resume to the job field. Also make sure you have the “basic requirements” down on your resume or your just going to be wasting time.

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
