My wife is trying to get back to work in the bay area after a year of not being in the US(due to covid travel/visa bans). It is very difficult to get a chance to interview and even after interviews not getting an offer(mostly reason being offer was accepted by another candidate) this ends up raising hopes and wasting a lot of time! Any tips on how someone has navigated through these situations and landed a job as a data/business analyst or TPM? TIA
