It may seem like a herculean task to find a new job during the pandemic or in times when one is unemployed. The fact is companies are still hiring and unemployed people are hirable. The advent of remote work is a fact of life for most companies. In the past, some companies, though desirable, may not have been considered because of geography, but this has now changed. The world of work has opened up many more opportunities for job seekers, so finding work in places not previously considered is no longer a job search factor.
Additionally, the rules and customs of looking for work are still in place. Job seekers need to be organized and use their network to help them identify opportunities. Resumes need to be targeted to the job you want and easy to read by recruiters and hiring managers.
Ultimately, there are pros and cons, so tenacity and a strong desire for your dream job still count.
