Target companies, then network to land your dream job

Dear J.T. & Dale: I've been unemployed for nearly two years. My last employer decided they didn't need a full-time help desk and laid us off. I figured I deserved a much-needed sabbatical. I had severance. Now, I'm résumé writing for a career pivot. Recruiters only want to stick you where they have openings or ghost you because you have standards. I'm just too old to start over at entry level. I try to stay hopeful, but I'm feeling beat up from the lies about salary, dead leads and disrespectful interviews. Is my dream job out there, or should I just settle? — Ron
