Anyone else feel tired of "maintaining your brand"? You have to jump over hurdles and endure whatever your client/engagement lead throws at you at the expense of your happiness and well being.

I've been searching for a new job for about 3 months and have only had 2 interviews. I've refined my resume numerous times, create cover letters, take courses and add certificates to my LinkedIn profile, and reach out to recruiters and job posters via LinkedIn. Still no progress.
I also believe my current position is limiting my job prospects. It is in tech and events and I accepted it in 2020 because I couldn't find any other oppurtunity and needed a new job.
Looking for advice on the most black and hispanic friendly towns in the US. Particularly diverse and affordable places would be ideal. We're trying to avoid the mega towns and super expensive spots (LA, SF, Seattle, DC, NYC, etc.). Any thoughts?
Putting #KamalaHarris as #VP into perspective. See the red box? Until then, she would have been enslaved. See the blue box? Until then, she couldn’t vote. Yellow box? Until then, she had to attend a segregated school. And the green box? Until then she couldn’t have her own bank account. Let the significance of this achievement sink in.
I'm having a difficult time finding a new position.
I've had interviews but, the main challenges are not hearing back from recruiters even after several rounds of interviews, discovering during interviews that a role does not fully match the description posted etc. Otherwise, I'm simply not hearing back from others despite revising my resume multiple times and submitting cover letters. Really trying not to settle for a role but it seems I may have to. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
