Due to recent issues in the banking world, my previous employer (a bank) forced me to resign (with a promised great reference) with the threat of being fired (and a bad reference). I was never given a reason as to why I was being threatened. A possibility would be that I was looking to leave the company after 5 years of chaos. I was very measured and methodical in my approach. It was my goal to transition to remote work as it was a better fit for my lifestyle and to help manage persistent mental health issues. In February my plan came to fruition, and I had everything I needed to make the transition, except for a different job. I was in talks with a college for a remote position helping new students. I went through the entire interview process and was in constant communication with their HR department. After the interviews, we spoke again about a start date and pay rate, though not an official offer.

It was that information along with not wanting a bad reference for a job that is the longest on my resume which led me to resign. At the time, I thought I was making the right decision. It would be a week after my departure that I find out the possible job was put on hold. In the meantime, I was applying to multiple jobs as a backup. I had about 2 months of expenses from my 401k to keep things under control. A few weeks later, I inquired about the status of the "hold" and was met with a generic rejection email.

I applied for 200+ jobs both in-person and remote, many I was overqualified for. As of the time I am writing this, I have had 4 interviews. I have tried redoing my resume, redoing my cover letters and multiple strategies to find employment. Adding salt to the wound is the lack of feedback in the process. I have no idea what else I can do to change my fortunes.

It is because of this that I am now in danger of losing my apartment. I am facing two big obstacles, the first and most immediate is my electricity bill. I am facing disconnection on 6/14 if I do not pay $769. If my electricity is disconnected, it will result in me breaking my lease and being evicted. To make matters worse, even after this, I would still need to pay rent ($550) by July 5th.

My savings have been exhausted and I am at the point where I don't know what to do.
