Hey guys, hope you are all safe.
So, I really need some advice. I've been wanting to change jobs for at least 10 months now. I cannot stand my current job, the company I work for, people in my team... I dread every Monday.
However, we are in the middle of a pandemic and I cannot simply quit.
I've been trying to change jobs before the pandemic even started and it hasn't been going well. Actually, things got really worse with the pandemic.
I've established that even if I hate my job, I'm only leaving it for a better place. I don't want to keep hoping jobs in the next year, so I want to make sure I'm doing a well thought move.
So, during these 10 months I've never really found job openings that made me excited until last week.
SERIOUSLY, I WANT THIS JOB SO BAD. I've already applied on Glassdoor, but I don't want to lose this opportunity.
I've been searching for LinkedIn connections or friends that could introduce me to someone at the company or at least send my cv to the HR, but well... it's not going well.
One of my former work colleagues knows someone that works for the company. She told me that she and this person went to university together, but that they were mere acquaintances. :(
How can I make this work? Do you think I should ask my former colleague to introduce me to this guy or send him my cv?
