✔️ How to Make an Effective Job Search During Pandemic? – “Improper communications. I see a lot of job seekers who quite frankly have not built up enough business acumen and their written and verbal communication makes it obvious. Quick sentences like, “here’s my resume, what do you think?” without even an introduction or a thank you at the end is frustrating for hiring professionals, recruiters, and career coaches/resume writers like myself. Act proper. Act like you don’t know this person because you don’t. No one owes you anything, so treat every interaction like you’re meeting an important person to you. Also, misspellings in written communications aren’t showing attention to detail.”
While it’s not easy to get a dream job and switch careers, there are still many opportunities in the labor market today. If you’re looking to change your role or find a new job, now is the best time to do it.
