I have a solid work history up until this coming week when my current employer (a small startup) is set to let me go. I've never been unemployed before, so I took my resume and sent it to all of my contacts while I was still employed.
I'm getting lots of callbacks which is great, but I can't seem to use my time effectively to do the CS 101 review that I need to do in order to get good at doing interviews.
Today an in house recruiter let me know that 3rd party recruiters are submitting my resume to him and that I should be more careful about who I send my resume to. Should I pause sending out resumes and calling contacts to focus on interview prep? I am concerned that if I stop, companies will see too large a gap on my resume.
Update: I was able to find a job in about a little over a month.
