Apply like crazy. Come up with a unique pitch for how you can solve problems in these circumstances and email agency recruiters and leadership directly. And good luck!

What’s the alternative? If you don’t try...then what?

Yes. To both. If you have a year’s worth of savings then yeah, take time off.

Apply to whatever you find but know that most agencies are on a hiring freeze for now.

A company called DASH technologies reached out to me saying I pay 16% of first year salary once I get a job. They said they will get me interviews. I have been working on my job search for a long time. What are your thoughts on these types of staffing agencies. I can get interviews on my own but no offers. I'm applying as a Software Engineer/ Web/ Fullstack.

Asking for my spouse. She is five months pregnant and has a amazon offer. She works for Deloitte too. Deloitte definitely has a better maternity leave but amazon is doubling her take home salary. Also agreed to work from home for two years. Thoughts? Stress wise her Deloitte practice ( strategy) is probably as stressful or more as compared to amazon role so it literally boils down to maternity benefits for us.
