What do you need connections at the company for to get in..I’ve had 3 jobs since graduating and none of them relied on having connections at the company to get in. Only at Deloitte was there any ask of “do you know anyone here”

I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience? But I was told it’ll be much harder and I would be expected to work longer hours and managers will be rough on me. Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).

I was fired by my firm in Oct for a combo of covid-related & other reasons, jumped right into volunteering for Biden campaign, then spent Dec/Jan dealing with family issues. Now trying to figure out how to address in interviews, what to do about writing samples & references. In the past I’ve only worked with recruiters when they contacted me about a particular job. Can I hire a recruiter to help me with my job search? Or a career coach? If so, how do I find the right person?
