Do your research on specific companies that you would want to work for then take note of how it dealt with the crisis and its employees. That way, as you apply for a job you will be well equipped on the shifts they’ve made and how your skills are relevant to fill the gap.

As many are in the frontline to fight the spread of coronavirus, it has led to millions being unemployed. One can’t help but wonder if it’s a good time to send out resumes or just assume that no one is hiring. While it might seem like companies are not hiring, employers are busy behind the curtains setting up strategies to deal with the current crisis. You too should be preparing and coming up with strategies to help you get your dream job post COVID-19. Here are a few that you can implement: 

Expand your online network

Don’t underestimate the power of having networks. Many recruiters are using social networking to source for new or upcoming talent. By having an updated online profile, you stand out to potential employers. You can also join online professional groups, for example on Facebook and share your articles or ideas that are engaging. Remember, it’s not what you know rather who you know. 

Gather more data   

Information is key. Do your research on specific companies that you would want to work for then take note of how it dealt with the crisis and its employees. That way, as you apply for a job you will be well equipped on the shifts they’ve made and how your skills are relevant to fill the gap.  

Update your resume

After this pandemic, it’s likely that the number of remote workers will increase. Time is money so make sure you spend it wisely. You can use this time at home to demonstrate your effectiveness by improving your proficiency or learning something new, complete your profile to enable Fuzu help you in find the best free online courses that will equip you with leadership and soft skill as we prepare for life after Covid.This can be added to your CV which will be an added advantage.

Plan & execute

We are now living in our new normal which means a lot will change in the near future. So this means is you need to critically think on where demand for work will occur and how well prepared you are for those vacancies. Keep in mind that the type of work that is available in the market is different across other parts of the world. You implement it by taking the necessary action.
