$100k since 2018 in a vHCOL city. I have almost 6 years of experience now. I have been applying for jobs and it’s been quite a journey. Back in March I was more confident, I got an offer but it was such a lowballing offer I didn’t accept it. The other offer I verbally received that I was actually interested in, they ended up freezing the position.
I have an interview in an hour that I have been prepping for. It’s not a role I’ve ever worked on but fortunately I got a chance to interview with them. I feel so low and lifeless honestly. Has anyone gone through this? How do I get back being like my old, positive pre-pandemic self? This is just very depressing and I’ve been bombing my interviews recently maybe because of fatigue

OP - how did the interview go? Sending you love ❤️

I would need to see your resume to provide advice
