If you plan to move to a new city for a new gig, is it crazy to ask for some sort of employment guarantee where you can’t jump ship and at the same time can’t be fired for a certain duration?

Never crazy to ask. I’d put it as “if terminated prior to 6 months for any reason, company will pay out severance of 4 week’s pay.” Or you know however long you think it’s worth. It’s more to justify that you’d need time to find a new job in a new city... however you deciding to move for a new job is the calculated risk you’re taking, and while you can ask for them to hold some of the risk, they certainly have no obligation to take it.

So this happened. Since getting laid off I’ve been applying to every job that I believe I’m qualified for. 30 minutes after I hit send I received an email from the company stating that I did not have the right qualifications for the job. No one from the company looked at my portfolio. How do I get past the algorithm and get my work noticed by a real person?
