5 Ways To Keep Your Job Search Alive Through Coronavirus

Employers are slowing down hiring but that doesn’t mean hitting the brakes on your job search.

Between fears of coronavirus and the price of oil tanking, it’s been a rough few weeks for the market. And according to multiple reports this means some companies are waiting to hire more staff, which means more competition for anyone on the hunt.

So how do you keep moving forward when people are pushing back? Forbes magazine says there are five ways to keep your job search alive during a dry spell. First, be more aware of where you stand in your current process. If you have already had at least one interview, work closely with that person to get a decision as soon as possible. Respond quickly if they have questions or want to schedule a follow-up. Be available for any meetings.

Next, consider offering some other options. Maybe you work part-time or consult on a project if they’re not ready to offer something permanent. For more tips, check out the original article now. If you can’t change the hunt, just change your strategy.
