Have you been furloughed or laid off?
Were you looking for work before coronavirus hit and are still in the job market?
Are you wondering how to find a job in this time of economic upheaval and staying at home?
Quite a few clients are asking me for my thoughts on how coronavirus is affecting the job market - and how to use this time to best effect to land their next job. So I am running a webinar called "Looking for Work" this coming Friday afternoon to share my thoughts and take your questions.
I'll be covering
- Can we be optimistic? What do the stats tell us about the state of the job market and where the opportunities lie
- Why being strategic is the key to saving time and energy
- Top tips on refreshing your CV and updating your LinkedIn Profile
- How to do video interviews
- The curveball questions in interviews I think employers will be asking
- How to manage conducting your search from home - without going crazy
In 1993, when I graduated from law school, the Scottish economy was so poor that only 35 out of the 120 people I studied with achieved traineeships. I landed mine after one interview when the other traineeship at the firm was given to the other chap only after his second interview.
I also found work despite the dot.com bubble burst of the early 2000s, and as a career coach, helped many professionals and leaders find work when in late 2008 the banks went down.
While we are not in a "traditional" recession, there were significant changes to the recruitment process even before the virus, which all job seekers should know about if they are to succeed in their search.
I expect to take about an hour or so. If we get a huge turnout we may run on a little more.
