Hi Annie, I stumbled upon your Newsletter by sheer luck and have not been able to put it down since then. Like many others, I also struggled to land a job during the pandemic. It is a revelation and confidence restoring (and also a relief) to know that I was not alone. Job searching can be mentally exhausting, and there are not many 'practical tips' out there for career changers or someone with a non-linear career path (like me!).

Your insights are easy, straight forward, and sensible. My mind did a little dance when I checked only two boxes from the Generic CV Bingo. I instantly cut them out from my CV. Another key learning I took was from your transition from a Recruiter to a Product Manager. I have been associated with writing and editing for the longest time, and currently want to transition into Tech. I always wondered what kind of Tech company or role would suit me. I will start looking for the perfect intersection between the two now.

I wish I had found your content sooner. Better late than never. Thank you, and keep up the great work. Best, Khimpi Dutta
