It’s normal but something to be mindful of. Definitely get those applications to external jobs going in case this goes for much longer.

Please remain calm as 3 weeks is normal. But please work your network and try to get on a project even if the role is not ideal for now. Then you can start building your brand and pivot to a role that is more ideal or closely aligns to your skill set
