Looking for a job in the pandemic?

2020 has unquestionably been a challenging year and we are all still doing it tough!  Most countries in the world remain at various stages of self-isolation or lockdown and a vast number of industries still have their staff working from home or have had to step down their workforce. This clearly has had an impact on the recruitment industry with many jobs being put On Hold until the Coronavirus crisis passes. This means you will have seen far fewer adverts on job boards and on recruitment agency websites. And its a rollercoaster as we go in and out of various restrictions, depending on case numbers.

As we move towards an ease in restrictions in NSW, we are slowly starting to see companies reviewing their hiring plans and we are hearing from our clients that they will soon be recruiting, so now is the time to get ready! Hopefully we will have good news from VIC soon.

 

If you are looking for a job there are some proactive things you can do: 

  • Keep sending your CV out
  • Create profiles on LinkedIn and any other job board that gives you that facility, ensuring it matches your CV!
  • Keep having conversations with recruiters, you don’t need to call every day but touch base once a week or so
  • Stay active on LinkedIn, follow companies and reply to posts so that you are noticed
  • Stay focused and do something every day to try and find yourself a job
  • Things will get quieter in the lead up to Christmas but still do the work so you are ready for 2021!

We are not saying that by doing all of the above you will miraculously find your ideal job, but it gives you a focus and something to do in these trying times.

 

Whether you have been let go because of the virus pandemic, or are thinking about changing jobs, whatever your situation, if you are looking for a new role then we want to hear from you!

Times may be tough but we want to ensure that when things start to pick up we are best placed to find you a suitable job, this means having your most up to date information - send us your CV!
