Job Seeking During COVID-19

March 23, 2020

“Should I keep looking for a new job with all of this going on?”

If this thought has crossed your mind at some point since the coronavirus pandemic began, you’re not alone. In the midst of all the economic uncertainty, it is normal to wonder if you should put your job search on hold or keep looking.

Now is not the time to stop. We do not have a crystal ball to predict how things will change in the next few months.  However, we can provide career and employment supports so that you can develop more skills, confidence, and direction regarding your career path.

What The Work Place can help with:

Assistance to develop/fine tune your job search skills: resume, cover letter, interview skills (including digital interviewing), LinkedIn Profile, and networking.
