Going through a similar struggle. My brand name job came to an end. I thought it would lead to something bigger. To date it has not. It’s looks like I’ll have to take a step backwards to get by. I’ve been rejected by my “dream” company twice and may be receiving another rejection letter soon. Things are not too inspiring at the moment.
I find this article very encouraging and inspiring. It highlights that we do not know what is around the corner if we keep trying. Thank you for writing this article.
