Career Transition SIG

How to Get a Job in Coronavirus Era

Alex Freund

About this event:

Are you using old-school methods?   Are you struggling to be noticed?

We are in Coronavirus era! Many external and internal variables are influencing businesses today and can affect why a candidate’s expertise is needed or called in for an interview.

Social media has quickly emerged as a fruitful tactic. It continues to gain traction as mobile technology expands and turns recruiting into an around-the-clock practice. Companies, recruiters, hiring managers, and human resources officials are part of a powerful community that is using social media because social media works.

You may find yourself avoiding social media for any number of reasons, some of them justifiable. However, the positives and the opportunities outweigh your reluctance to jump on board. In this session, you will discover why social media and other tactics have to be part of your job search strategy and what steps you can take to propel you ahead of the competition.  Social media not only helps you uncover job leads and build your professional brand; it also can accelerate your job search.

During this session, you will:

  • Get an inside look at how social media can work for you.
  • Find out that social media can share what’s not on your résumé.
Identify tools to help you manage your search.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
