So you’ve quit. Here are the tech tools that can help you land a new job

For Patrick Moran, who put in his two weeks’ notice at the end of October, job hunting has become a web of confusion given his unfamiliarity with professional networking online.

Moran, who is a production manager of a doughnut bakery in Rhode Island, said he has been struggling with constant turnover in staffing, long hours that start at 2 a.m., no benefits and stress that got worse during the pandemic. Now he’s hoping to land a job that will meet a few basic requests: allow him to sit down in an office, work normal hour and have some benefits. But the job search has been tough, and cold applying to jobs on company websites and online professional networking site LinkedIn has been relatively fruitless for him.
