Let’s be honest—in many ways, this is probably the worst time in recent history to be job hunting. By some estimates, nearly 20% of Americans are unemployed, and social distancing requirements mean job fairs, in-person interviews, and networking events are all canceled.
But while there are hiring freezes and cutbacks at many companies, there are still some opportunities. Like much else these days, job hunting now requires some flexible thinking and adapting. Now might not necessarily be the time to climb the ladder to a bigger job, but it is the time to explore career opportunities you may have put on the back burner in more comfortable times.
