COVID-19 Job Outlook: Job Seeking During the Pandemic
According to a recently released report by McKinsey, jobs will most likely change following the pandemic. The report says the adoption of automation and digitization will accelerate. Demand for contract and remote workers will increase as well. Thanks to COVID-19, the way we look for a new job is changing too. In-person and face-to-face interviews have moved to video formats.
Traditional networking is now mostly online. But those changes don’t mean you should put your job search on hold. Some of the tactics we’ve used in the past continue to be effective while some new approaches are also working. Our Career Center Team, among other things, offer comprehensive career planning assistance to students while working closely with employers. Take advantage of virtually connecting with a Career Center Coach to talk about the ways job seekers are finding success during the pandemic. We offer, twice each weekday, Virtual Walk-In and Chat Sessions, for quick questions about your career development or our career resources. To make an appointment for some one-on-one time, simply make an appointment with a Career Coach through your GatorHiRED! account.
