Your Job Search in the era of Covid
Do your research
Go directly to the position’s main duties and line them up with the company’s mission statement. Are you able to see how the everyday tasks lineup with the overall progress of the company and customers.
Explore what are the key areas that are growing and where employers are desperately seeking talent or likely to need more talent in the next few years.
Make sure you have systems in place for tracking potential employers, key contacts you want reach out to, and jobs you’ve applied to.
Organized people don’t waste time. They recognize that keeping things organized goes hand-in-hand with staying productive. They make and keep schedules for the day and week. They make deadlines and set goals. How you do anything is how you do everything.
Practice for an interview
While you can’t prepare for every single interview question you will be asked, you can still brush up on your interviewing skills by practicing your answers to the most common questions asked by recruiters and hiring managers. Knowing how you will respond in advance will keep you composed during any future interviews.
Don’t forget to take care of yourself during this trying time. Finding a new job is stressful — especially when you’re in a rush. Take some time to meditate, exercise, listen to your favorite album, or whatever else it is that helps you unwind — and make sure to find a support network as well.
