Can I take the home office deduction

In 2018 I was unemployed and looking for a job in my current occupation for a number of months. I was at home, on my computer, searching for the opportunities. Can I take the home office deduction?

Thanks so much!

No, you cannot.  Sorry, but job-related expenses and job search expenses were suspended as federal deductions  for W-2 employees by the new tax laws.
