I'm being furloughed a 2nd time due to the COVID-related regulations. I live in Miami.

Friday will be my last day here.


I'm nervous because I only have about 4 months living expenses in savings.
I'm going to apply to as many jobs as I can, and even send some cold emails to hiring managers/CEO's of marketing agencies in my area.

On the other hand, I'm a bit relieved because my current job offered no health insurance benefits and the salary was low.

Any advice for finding a new marketing job
 
Keep sending job applications, don't give up ! you don't seem to be a lazy person... also read here https://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/my-journey-discussions.167/ as you may find something you are interested in.
 
We’re in the same boat but remain calm, see BHW threads and see if you can start something from it

Thank you.
I've been working everyday on learning the skills to start my own marketing agency.
I just don't like that now I have this added pressure to make things work because I'll need money for basic living expenses
 
Same here...Lost my Job as a Med engineer to to the Covid-19. But Stay strong . were in the same job. Never give up.
 
Do you have a college degree? A stem degree can easily lend you jobs in USA.
 
Reduce your regular expenses and start your online journey with minimum expenses.
I already have really low living expenses and live very frugally. Only $600 per month for rent, and electric bill is about $50-$80 monthly.
 
Keep in mind, ppl lost Families due to COVID. With no savings at all.

You have savings for at least 4 months. If you are incapable of finding a new job or source of income, you most likely craptalking with this post or expect us to give you 1 million dollars per day secret.

Online business does not require you a lot of money.
99% of the things on the market can be obtained for free or cheap. If you are going the SEO way.

Hang in there. Believe in yourself.

Use IM as a side hustle and when you are ready along the way take the jump.

Focus on landing that job. You can do it.

That is pretty frugal for Miami for sure.
 
I will suggest you to try to get back to work force as soon as you can. You don't have much safety net. IM can wait. First get your situation stabilized.
 
Me too. I lost my job since April and don't have any money. I feel like I'm a burden now in the family. I still send applications to apply for a job but don't have any luck. I bought a domain from my last money in paypal and right now I build a website in order for me to get passive income when I hit some luck here. My last salary was spent from a new sdd and now I don't have any money left for hosting so I just stick right now in free hosting. I think I will end up as a beggar after some months if there's still no luck for me :weep:
