Have you secured any interviews? If no, have someone review your resume.

Have you had interviews but didn’t get an offer?
- did you follow up the interview with a thank you email and bonus example of why you’re great for the job
- did you ask thoughtful questions at the end of the interview

Hey, really sorry to hear that. I can’t imagine the stress and frustration you’re going through right now.

Are you comfortable sharing your skill set, years of experience, and preferred work? That’ll let recruiters here reach out to you about open positions and I’ve seen some individuals drop referral links for openings too.

I’m leaving my job soon for a new adventure and there’ll be an opening at my company in the next couple of weeks. Feel free to reach out via DM and we can chat about whether it’s a right fit. If it is, I can ask a friend for a referral link which would guarantee an intro chat with a recruiter. :)

Starting a new job tomorrow. Right after I accepted the offer I actually found out through one of my referrals that the manager that I interviewed with got moved to another team. Not only do I have a new manager that I never met but he’s also a brand new manager. He seems to have been a top engineer. I feel like it was a bait and switch. Has anyone else experienced this? I’m now terrified that I’m going into this new role blindly.
