Topic 3: Addressing Increased Unemployment

Finding a Job in Today's World

This is so tough. Many of the usual rules apply. Look at the job market and see what field is doling the most amount of hiring. Remind the job seeker that while this is not their first choice there is value in applying for the job. Remind the job seeker to complete their applications fast. There are many people looking for jobs right now. Put your best foot forward-look over your application packet with a fine tooth comb. Make a good first impression. Learn new technology. Be prepared to interview virtually. Practice using different platforms that you may need for interviews and/or work so that you're ready when needed. Be prepared to take a lower salary than you ordinarily would. Remember this is temporary.
