Has anyone faced with unemployment with no prospects struggling with suicidal thoughts? I feel like the places I’m interviewing are within my capabilities, I mean, I’m getting the interviews. But nothing is hitting. Does anyone have any positive coping mechanisms?

Hang in there, the right position will come. Please seek professional help of you are having suicidal thoughts, you can get through this.

The work will come. So many are in the same boat. Surround yourself with family and friends virtually or otherwise. Don’t look too far ahead and freak yourself out. When it gets super tough get through it by focusing on next hour or next minute if that is what it takes. This too shall pass. Been there. Feel you.

Happy to be an ear if you want to talk. Feel free to PM me. I also have a pretty great production network.

Happy to connect and commiserate! I’m beyond qualified, have worked at top shops, over a decade experience and I get a million interviews but then something doesn’t work out. Seriously, it’s out of your control. I’ve increased exercise and meditation. And instead of scrolling through newsfeeds I’ve rediscovered how much I missed reading books! Of course I check openings, just not every second of the day anymore. It made me super depressed for a long stretch. To the point that ironically I could not have worked even if everyone has wanted to hire me. Hang in there; focus only on the positive. Opportunities will come.

If a recruiter asks me if I’ve spoken to another recruiter at the company, is it okay if I lie and say no? Or should I just be honest and say yes? I’ve heard of instances where candidates have been ghosted if they say they’ve been in contact with another recruiter. In my case, the recruiter I was in contact with messaged me on LinkedIn and never followed up after our 5 minute phone conversation. I really want this job so I don’t want to mess anything up before getting an interview.
