Jennifer Davis lost her job as director of catering and special events at a small restaurant chain within 15 minutes of Maryland shuttering bars and eateries in mid-March.

Nearly 10 months later, Davis is still looking for work. A 20-plus-year veteran of the restaurant industry, she’s applied “nonstop” to a wide range of positions, including in management, operations and as an executive assistant, with little to no response.

Jennifer Davis hopes to expand her job prospects by going back to college and studying to become a real estate agent.

To give herself some more options, she’s now studying to become a real estate agent and is taking online classes toward a bachelor’s degree in marketing at the University of Maryland.
