      Blind should literally filter PII from posts. Isn’t this the company based on ?

      He probably created a throw away alias.

      Throwaway alias for a college email address? Is it that easy to generate?

      Yes. I get 3 aliases that I can change any number of times on my school email.

    Are you financially stable based on savings/equity? Study up and hit the big dawgs. Show them what years in the industry gave you.

      @aquan Not sure if you got the gist, the way I took it , is be confident and start looking what you are worth .. and if you are somewhat financially stable one big thing to worry less about at lest until you land on your next job .

      I'm speculating, but it sounds like the OP worked at Tesla on Enterprise erp systems (probably warp). If so he likely was laid off in July and his severance ran out in September.

    Do resumes need to be changed every time when applied for a different role to match the description ? Any thoughts?

      Yes. Even if it’s two different roles at the same company. Otherwise, see above post.

      Yes. Spend 5-15 min on making it relevant to the job description.

    Try Tesla, other than that I think you’ll have hard time selling yourself to other tech firms since ERP implementation skills are rarely needed

    Start an LLC. Think of any sort of BS for a startup, anything you do as a private contractor falls under this. Any sort of investment you get from yourself, family and friends etc counts. No concern if it fails. You were not laid off, you had an idea for a startup and it didn’t work out but you learned a lot in the process. Document what you learned even if it is BS, this will make you marketable.
