Due to the pandemic, there are a lot of people looking for new jobs. Fortunately, there are still places hiring.
But how do you search for a new role in the time of social distancing?
Udacity recently held a webinar to share some tips and ideas:
The job market is changing rapidly due to company and industry-wide responses to the Coronavirus. If your job search strategy consists mainly of applying for jobs online, there is much more that you can be doing to increase your chances of landing a new job. Most people approach job searching reactively. They see a posting and react by applying.
In this webinar, we show you strategies for networking, relationship building, & personal branding designed to increase your chances of getting employee referrals (the current top method for landing interviews). Some of these strategies may also lead to employers/recruiters reaching out to you and landing interviews without ever applying.
