The depression is really starting to set in...it feels so impossible to even get noticed, let alone get an interview and then actually get hired. I’m trying to stay positive but it’s really hard.

It’s tough out there right now. I was laid of a few months ago and I know exactly what you are talking about. No one emails back, a few meetings here and there, but it’s been dead. I try to work and think on it a few hours every day and then enjoy the time off. It’s ok to feel depressed and not always positive, just don’t let it consume you. Hang out with your friends more. That’s helping me a lot.

I currently work at a very ”hyped” food delivery tech company. I’ve been there for 1,5 years now, but the pay is low, bad company culture and I don’t feel appreciated for the work I do. So i’m overall not to happy there, and looking for a new job. However every interview I’ve had so far ask why I want to leave such a ”great” company after less than 2 years? I don’t want to shittalk my job but it’s really makes me feel like i should stay another 6m just so I don’t look bad. What would you do?

In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.
