I have topped out in my current director role and have been looking for a solid year for my next job without luck. I have had my resume professionally written, I have met with a career councilor from my university and I have asked recruiters for feedback on my resume all of which was helpful.
I am ready to take a role with more responsibility, a bigger staff and hopefully a bigger paycheck but I can’t seem to find roles to apply for. I have attended industry networking events and reached out directly to industry contacts letting them know I am looking without luck.
Part of me wonders “Is it me?” but in speaking with others I wonder if there are just so few high level jobs and they often go to internal candidates so my options are limited?
I am in the Boston area and have a wide net as far as locations go, I haven’t had luck finding headhunters who are recruiting for my type of work. I run into the same recruiters over and over advertising jobs I am over qualified for or in locations/industries I am not pursuing.
I am nervous if I get laid off because of COVID I won’t be able to find work because i have been looking for so long with only 3 interviews.
