ok, so getting a little desperate and extremely frustrated because i have been looking for a new role for a long time (over a year and a half). i am looking for a real analyst role.
those who have had experience job hunting for long periods of time and getting many rejections/not even getting interviews, there comes a point (or many points) in time when you begin to wonder what the heck is wrong with you. which brings to my next question- do you think gender discrimination still exists? i know it doesn't overtly exist, but mentally is there a stigma for hiring women into analyst roles that require very long hours. i really want a job that is high pressure with long work days, but is it possible that they see a female and think to themselves that women can't handle it as well as men?
also, doesn't help that i look much younger than my age. i want to be taken seriously but i'm wondering if these external factors that i can't control are hurting my job search to any extent.
