4 Job Tips During Corona

Most HR departments and managers are just getting everyone up to speed on the logistics and daily routines of a fully remote workforce so it might be difficult to reach people in the first few weeks of the transition, says Kathleen Landers, executive director of SEQUENCE Counseling and Consulting Services in Silver Spring, MD. Plus, “people have a lot of concerns—they might have elderly parents, relatives in other countries, young children to take care of, even their own health issues.”

Be prepared for job openings to be put on hold or disappear, even if they’ve been open for a while. That doesn’t mean they won’t open up again in a few months. Landers admits she herself was getting ready to hire someone but decided to put that on hold for a few weeks. “If I can tell my business will maintain the same level of income and consumers will still want the product, then I will move ahead,” she says.

With all that said, you can still be actively working on your job search. These tips will help you navigate the process during the pandemic and the accompanying economic slowdown.

A. Think Your Urgency

If you can afford to put your job search on hold, you may want to wait it out, Landers says, because it could be challenging to get on a hiring manager’s radar right now. “If you’re currently employed, think about how to make your job more palatable,” says Nancy Halpern, founder of Political IQ, a Manhattan-based leadership-consulting firm focused on developing emotional intelligence. “If you’re not employed, don’t think of your next job as the perfect job. It might be short term.”

While many industries have and will continue to be hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, others are still hiring. If you’re unemployed and need a stopgap, consider looking there or wherever else you can find an opportunity that makes sense for you—and pays the rent and puts food on the table—in the meantime.

B. Get Suitable Networking Online

Events will be cancelled for a while, so you’ll need to find a new networking strategy. Seek out like-minded professionals online and ask about virtual events, Halpern says.

Look for professional groups to join on Facebook and LinkedIn. Both platforms offer a wide range of options with groups for every profession. For instance, if you’re looking for a job in marketing, you could join LinkedIn’s Global Marketing and Communications Professionals group. “Join in the conversation, post and comment, and make yourself visible,” Halpern says. Just be sure to keep the conversation professional by posting relevant articles and chiming in on topics that allow you to demonstrate your expertise.

Get ready to ace a virtual informational interview or networking chat by practicing with a friend, says Laura Labovich, CEO of The Career Strategy Group in Bethesda, MD. Have your friend ask questions and give you feedback on your delivery. Make sure you know how to angle the camera so the person you’re meeting with can see your entire face, not just your forehead or your left eye. Once you’ve mastered the technology, invite professional contacts to meet for a virtual coffee.

C. Stay In Connection

Maybe you recently had a promising interview and a job offer seemed to be on the horizon, but now the company has moved to remote work and you haven’t heard from the hiring manager. What should you do? Check in with the hiring manager by email, acknowledging that they might be scrambling to help their employees get used to the new setup, Moser says.

For instance, your email could say: “I’m looking forward to learning more when it makes sense for your organization.” This conveys that you know this is an extraordinary circumstance and acknowledges that this isn’t easy for people, she says.

Make sure you also demonstrate a thoughtful attitude. Rather than asking them to help you, ask if there is anything you can assist them with, Moser says. The idea is to connect with people on a human level, she says. Let’s say you’re contacting someone you’ve networked with in the past. Your email can simply say: “I wanted to reach out to see if there’s anything I can do for you.

You’ve been so generous with your time, I want to return the favor if I can.” If you have a specific skill a hiring manager might be able to tap into, mention it. You might say: “Given that I’ve led virtual teams, I might have some ideas to share on how to keep your employees feeling connected when they’re not in the office.”

Networking should be driven by what the company needs and how it matches up with your superpower,” Moser says. “It’s also an opportunity to demonstrate what type of employee you would be.”

And find other ways to stay top of mind in addition to email. For instance, connect with the hiring manager on LinkedIn and, if they post a status, comment on it, Labovich says. If the hiring manager posts a company report or press release, make a comment that illustrates you read it and have valuable insight to contribute. Pretend you’re giving them a preview of what you’d add to the team if you worked there.

D. Gather Intel

The COVID-19 crisis can provide a unique glimpse into company culture. Take note of how leadership deals with this emergency and treats its employees by following the company on social media and watching for any media coverage, says Heidi Parsont, CEO and founder of TorchLight Hire in Alexandria, VA. For instance, is the company allowing employees to work from home? Are they supporting workers in other creative ways? Did they lay off staff?

Set up Google alerts for the companies you want to work for and listen to investor calls, Labovich says. When you do have a chance to interview, you’ll be able to demonstrate that you understand the concerns leadership has and the threats the company faces from this pandemic, she says. You can mention what you read and listened to and use your specific knowledge to drive home how you could help the company achieve its goals if hired.

E. Use the Time to Reflection

Job seekers often jump at the first available opportunity or go into their search without fully considering what they want to do next. Take advantage of the slowing job market by getting clarity about where you want to work and the type of role and title you’re seeking.

Create a one-page document that lists your target industry, companies, job titles, and anything in particular you’re looking for, Labovich says. It goes without saying that you should apply to every posting you see that hits some or all of your criteria. But beyond job openings, you can also focus on which companies you want to work for and who you can reach out to at those companies. (The company might not have an open role yet but you can use your network to help you start making connections now.)

Be prepared to think about your role more broadly and possibly pivot to an adjacent position that would also make use of your experience and skills. For instance, you might have been targeting a marketing role but with fewer people spending money, the company might be more inclined to hire someone for a communications role during this crisis. “Play the long game,” Lander says. “There is a lot of shifting going on right now.”

Conclusion

Now is the perfect time to work on bolstering your qualifications, Moser says. Analyze job descriptions by listing each required skill and experience. Then consider whether you have that exact skill, if you have the skill but haven’t used it in a few years, or if you’re lacking the skill entirely. Use that information to determine what you need to brush up on to make yourself an even better candidate when the job market picks up again.

For instance, if you’re applying for social media or marketing specialist positions, the listing will likely require experience with Google Analytics and Hootsuite. Being certified in either or both would make your resume stand out.

  9. Wow, marvelous blog structure! How long have you ever been running a blog for? you make running a blog look easy. The whole glance of your web site is excellent, let alone the content material!!

  10. Needed to put you that tiny observation just to give many thanks as before for those remarkable pointers you’ve documented in this case. It was simply particularly open-handed of you to offer without restraint what exactly numerous people would’ve offered for sale for an e book to get some bucks for their own end, mostly since you might well have tried it in the event you wanted. The creative ideas additionally acted like a fantastic way to understand that other people have similar passion just like my own to grasp a little more around this matter. I am sure there are millions of more enjoyable sessions ahead for folks who scan your site.

  11. Wow, incredible blog layout! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you make blogging look easy. The entire glance of your website is magnificent, as neatly as the content material!!

  12. I manage a vape shop directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also offers for sale CBD items. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape store submission site. We do not offer for sale CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We merely offer marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Retailer and if you take a good peek, you will witness that they supply a surprisingly substantial variety of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is applying contradictory standards to many different firms. Because of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment options and now, I am seriously contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken to a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is entirely illegal and discriminatory as it should be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am yet to check with an additional legal representative from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.

  13. You are so awesome! I do not suppose I have read through a
    single thing like this before. So good to find somebody with some genuine thoughts on this
    subject. Really.. thanks for starting this up. This website
    is one thing that is required on the internet, someone with some originality!

  14. Heya! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours take a large amount of work?
    I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal every
    day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it! http://harmonyhomesltd.com/Ivermectinum-tablets.html

  15. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I seem to be unable to proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Cosmopolitan that they were bought out by a UK hedge fund for $50 m. I have just bought the Meditate Yoga Bag from Ebay and totally love it xox

  18. Undeniably imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification seemed
    to be at the net the simplest thing to be mindful of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other folks consider
    worries that they just don’t recognize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the
    highest and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
