Read her advice quoted in "14 Totally Avoidable Mistakes Unemployed People Make During the Job Search":

If you’re unemployed, you may think you have no leverage and have to take what you can get, but this is incorrect. Focus on your totality of experiences and practice speaking broadly about your strengths and skills in a way that brings your entire background into the conversation so you’re not focusing solely on your most recent position. Do you have a side hustle that you’ve been building? Have you done meaningful volunteer work that’s helped you build out a new skill set? Taken any continuing education or online class to gain fresh knowledge? Bring these into the discussion.
