For the past few months, we’ve all been asked to do lots of things online that we’d rather do in person: birthday parties, doctors appointments, interviews, and of course: job searching. During a simpler time, we could meet up with mentors at coffee shops to help us crunch our resumes, attend career workshops and networking events, and even interview face-to-face without posing a serious health risk. And while you can’t replace the valuable experience of getting together in person with mentors, peers, and colleagues, there are plenty of tools to help you stay just as productive in your job search — while staying at home.
We put together some of our favorite online resources to help you stay at the top of your game when it comes to finding your next big job opportunity. So, if you’ve been tossed back onto the job market and find yourself nervously navigating this brand-new hiring landscape, scroll on to see our favorite virtual workarounds to help you network, interview, skill-build, and more.
We've been talking a lot lately about how to deal with pandemic-related challenges: how to transition into a virtual workspace, what to do now that you're living a new reality at home, etc. But these issues are small potatoes to those who are experiencing widespread job loss due to the pandemic. If this is you, you're likely thinking, "Forget about work from home - I need to find work, period!" In which case, we get it. While it can feel impossible right now to find the right job, we want to let you know that great opportunities *are* out there!

While the unwelcome impact of the pandemic has the entire nation transitioning into a new reality, many of us are facing circumstances we never imagined. The economic impact is hitting quickly, and one of the first things companies have done to preserve their budgets is cutting employees from their payroll. In March, an estimated 10 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits and The New York Times estimates that the current national unemployment rate has risen to nearly 13%. So, if you’re among the droves of Americans facing unexpected layoffs due to COVID-19, you’re not alone.
During this unprecedented time, it’s easy to start feeling empty-handed when thinking about what to do next; but we want to remind you that while you may be down, you’re not out. Like all things — this too, shall pass, and in the meantime we want to offer our support and let you know that you do have options. But where to start? Take a breath, regroup, and consider these steps for moving your career forward.
