Job searching is a process at any time. But, there are still multiple employment options, and places to turn for employment support during Covid-19.
Make sure that you are managing your expectations.
During this period you might consider employment options in your greater-community, even if they are outside of your area of study, degree program, or career track/goals. This experience is still good experience. Oftentimes, experiences outside of a student’s field or interests can build important transferable skills which can be used later when applying for jobs in any field.
These resources include:
- A Summer Employment Programs Guide
- Tips for getting started on your job search
- Information about how volunteering can help boost your employability and job-prospects
- The stages of a job posting being made available
- Much, much more
