Hi there :)

Just wanted to share my struggle from 2 month now, just how difficult is to find a good job ? I mean January and February are not the best apparently, but still sending 15 application per day here and on LinkedIn doesn't seams enough.
Please any suggestions? :)

January and February are some of the slowest recruiting months of the year. Public accounting firms are in spring busy season and completed all their immediate hiring needs by the fall and industry companies are busy with year-end close and wrapping up budgets for the year.

Yeah. Public accounting firms don't do much hiring activity in January and February because they're just too busy with their existing busy season work. They don't have time for interviewing, much less onboarding.

Still, get on the careers sections of websites for firms, and submit your resume. Obviously, if there's a job you want, apply for that, but if there's a way to submit it generally, there's a chance that their computer system will match you up to something when they get back to hiring.

If you're looking for corporate work, try Indeed. They had more jobs than LinkedIn, the last time I looked. USAJobs if you'd do government work.

If you have any tax experience, consider being a Live Tax Expert for TurboTax or the like. Just to keep your resume from having a gap. And you'll get to brag about your customer service skills in future interviews. Or check out gig work on Fiverr or something like that.

Hi there! So sorry you’re going through this, it sounds frustrating.

Unfortunately, given the current market climate, you’ll probably need to reach out to your connections for referrals. That’s the biggest way to stand out from your competition.

Besides that: resume reviews, interview prep, posting on LinkedIn (either creative content or reaching out to your network broadly), and emailing/messaging recruiters or people in the team in which you’re looking to get hired

Hope this helps, and best of luck - you got this! :)
