Here’s everything you should know.
The unemployment rate in the United States has reached new heights, workers are adapting to the longer-term reality of working from home and many companies are slowing down hiring and promotions.
Edith Cooper and Jordan Taylor are a mother-daughter duo who run Medley, a life and career coaching service. When the pandemic hit, they had to pivot their business from in-person coaching to virtual, so they know what people are going through.
With more job interviews done virtually rather than in-person, Taylor said to make sure to put yourself in the best light.
Both Taylor and Cooper say to be direct when reaching out to potential employers and people in your field with whom you want to be connected.
Even though your company may not be offering raises or promotions right now amid the pandemic, don’t be afraid to speak up, advised Cooper.
