I got laid off during the beginning of the pandemic. Since then I’ve been struggling with drug use and finances. Deloitte hired me out grad school. I’ve been unable to find a job in IT Controls. Any help? I did IT Controls Audit Readiness for a couple years. The market is so niche and being black makes it twice as hard to find work. I really need some help landing a new role folks. I’m 22 days clean!
