Job Hunting during lockdown
Live Coaching 1 - The 3 Reasons why now is a good time to apply for jobs
Hi, if you are new here, my name is Renata Bernarde and I teach professionals the steps and frameworks to help them find them great jobs, change and advance their career with confidence and less stress. If that's you, then please subscribe to newsletter and let's keep in touch!
Yes you should definitely continue applying for jobs during covid-19! And here are three main reasons why:
You have nothing to lose. If you don't get the job, no one is going to judge you. Better to get the practice now even if for jobs you don't want so that when the ideal job comes along you are fit and ready to send out a great application! And you get to keep a finger on the pulse of the job market.
If your sector is severely impacted, let's look at your career at the granular level. Revisit your innermost dreams and aspirations. Now is the time to pivot, what are the skills that you have that can translate well to other sectors? Sectors that are thriving, or at least operating that you are interested in.
Be in the know: understand how the lockdown is affecting your sector. Put yourself in the shoes of the customer, client ,supplier, how would you do business in June for example or next year? What would have changed? These changes are your red flags on what you need to start planning for.
