I'd look into contractor roles if possible. You'll probably be able to get more hits that way

Short route would be to have referrals– the long way would be to start from scratch in order to gather experience that'll eventually qualify you for applications.

Can you switch within your current company? there may be some leniency there.

Develop a strong network on LinkedIn and consider having your resume edited by a professional to specifically target your desired job. Try www.prsnbranding, they do a great job with resumes

I tell myself: this epidemic is a marathon and not a sprint. Many people, including myself, are questioning their motivation during quarantine.

Motivation will also increase as we get used to WFH’ing. Avoid stagnation and burnout, position yourself the best way you can for normalcy.

I have a 3.5 yo and a 4 month old. I end up spending a lot of time at home with the 4 mo. old on weekends since he either needs to nurse or nap, and it isn’t always easy to do that while on outings with my husband and 3.5 yo. I try to join when I can and be flexible with the 4 mo old’s schedule, but it isn’t often. I miss spending time as a family, feel like I’m missing out, and also miss 1:1 time with my husband which is basically nonexistent. Any advice? Just a season of life? Thx!
