What is the best way to get a new job? LinkedIn seems saturated with how many applications are sent in. Organic networking the best move?

Yes, and also through recruiters

One thing I might add is to show up in person to meetups/networking events in fields you want to enter. It’s far easier to make an impression in person than by a piece of paper that represents you

I’ve gone through referrals for all the positions I’ve gotten, and once a job fair. I think I should be able to sustain this for most of time, but just in case I’m targeting only reach positions at big tech names (I work in an engineering role).

Flip your LinkedIn to “looking for new opportunities”

Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?

9 years in and I am finding my work performance has been declining for about a year now, and especially the last few months. I am taking longer to complete tasks, making more mistakes, and having so much more trouble focusing and staying on task. Have been WFH since March 2020, not seeing anyone outside of my immediate family and generally more anxious than usual, so I’m wondering if this is all mental health related. Can anyone relate? Any advice?
