The Best Gifts For Someone Looking For A New Job

Raise your hand if you enjoy job searching. Getting a new job can be an overwhelming process, sometimes taking months and often involving several rounds of interviews. You might go through a few interviews that you thought went great, then never hear anything back, despite polite follow-ups — indeed, employer ghosting has become all too common. Or maybe you're having a hard time even snagging an initial interview, even though you've tweaked your résumé and cover letter to fit each application.
