Some more details would help. What do you want to do? Where did you graduate from? Where do you want to work?

Hey thanks for replying. I graduated from Lawrence Tech in Michigan. I want to work in quality or supply chain related fields.

I would start reaching out to people on linked in with job titles you’d be interested in. Ask them how they got there, if they have any certifications, etc. I don’t know enough about those fields to help, so you need to find someone who does to help them guide you.

The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.
