I've been unemployed since April due to downsizing because of the pandemic. I have been rigorously applying and interviewing for jobs since then. Admittedly, my curiosity about opportunities is more open than it was before. I am still sticking with my, "dream job" mentality; 1) purposeful work I will enjoy and grow, 2) within and hour commute (once we can be together), 3) appropriate compensation for my worth and 4) a positive/optimistic culture. That said, I am considering jobs I never would have before because my bias either about the organization or the stereotypes around the job title. A (male) colleague of mine suggested I, "Take anything." What do you think?
