Job Searching During A Pandemic
The year 2020 has thrown quite the curveball at us all. The rise of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people in more ways than one. Most recently, 6.6 million Americans have filed unemployment claims in the week ending on April 4. This number has increased from 3.3 million and 6.9 million in the two previous weeks, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
Job searching during a pandemic adds challenges to a process that can already be sometimes tricky. Starting a new job and career should be an exciting time. This new chapter for you doesn’t have to be put on hold. Explore how you can accomplish job searching during a pandemic in our latest blog.

Be Active on LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a great platform to start your job search. Being active on LinkedIn is a great idea when it comes to standing out in the workplace.

Having a LinkedIn that is filled out properly and represents you well as a professional will boost your chances of standing out.
We have one word for you: webinar. Webinars are booming in today’s society as in-person events are being canceled and postponed.
