Currently at a toxic work environment, but can't leave!
Just wanted to hop on for some advice. I work at an event design company in NYC, basically living the life of Andy from Devil Wears Prada. Thats not the problem - I work around VERY toxic people who have really negatively impacted my mental, emotional, and physical well being within the past two years - from discrimination to negative personal opinions being shared left and right.
I have been actively job searching for months now, applying to at least 5-10 new jobs a week through Indeed and LinkedIn. Although both my profiles and resume have been perfected, and I have adequate degree and professional experience, I have not heard back from one job - NOT ONE! Not even for an interview in order for me to be given the chance to prove my intelligence and determination. I apply for jobs I am qualified for, make sure I am one of the first to apply to new postings, etc.
What am I doing wrong? I mentally cannot stay at my current job, but I can't leave until I find a new one. :(
