IDK of a specific thread or forum, but when I was exploring careers in a niche field, I found that LinkedIn groups were super helpful. There are probably some dedicated to space careers where you can connect with people in the industry and get advice. Also, if you're up for it, reaching out directly to NASA contractors on LinkedIn might open some doors too.
 
The act of hiring is an extremely valuable thing. Any person hiring is going to extract as much as possible from the process, thus no one is ever hired where additional tokens for future use are not generated. What this means is no one is ever simply hired from a website or an application. It is always "a friend of a friend" or " a guy that Joe knows". Such a referral is like gold for both sides.
Bottom line: You need an "in". Go to where the decision makers are located, physical or virtual. Set up camp. Go to the gym. Join a church. Start a business, whatever. At some point you will meet someone who knows someone. This is the only way people get hired. Just go read up on the software engineers who put out 1,000 applications and hear nothing.

That sounds like an exciting career move! I'm not sure about a specific thread, but there are plenty of online forums and communities dedicated to space careers. Have you checked out platforms like Reddit or LinkedIn?
