I am increasingly more dissatisfied each day working at my current company and of course I used that energy to apply for jobs. The process of hating my job and applying for a new job is so exhausting. I want to just quit my job right now and hope I get a job offer soon but I don’t like the idea of me being unemployed. I have been applying for jobs for about 2 months now with no luck. What is your advice to become mentally stronger in the job search process?

I'm sorry you're going throuh this. Are you getting any interviews at all? If you're not getting in my bites, I would recommend getting your resume reviewed/optimized as that may help improve the job search. In terms of resilience, during my last job search, I just gave myself a limit of how many apps I was gonna do and stopped being so picky. Spray and pray actually worked for me lol

Hey! That's actually really promising! It may just take time to find the right fit. In terms of resilience again, find a way to vent after each work day. To a partner or a friend or a journal or your dog lol. Hang in there. You've got this.

Don't quit! It's tempting. However, unless you have a nest egg built up, it's not worth it. Find something that makes you completely happy and do some of that every day when you get home.
