About this talk

Covid-19 forced restrictions have resulted in the closure of many businesses and millions of Americans have found themselves out of work. As of July 2020, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were 16.3 million unemployed people in the United States (compared with 5.8 million in January 2020). The job search process has always been challenging but the pandemic has created new, unprecedented challenges. The good news is that there are many companies still hiring and with a strong resume and targeted job search you can uncover new opportunities that may not have been on your radar previously. In this webinar, Katie Perry will equip you with “must know” tips and advice to strengthen your job search. In addition, our team from Professional Diversity Network will share information about virtual job fairs and showcase companies that are hiring now. In this webinar, you will learn the following: •That it is a common misconception that a resume cannot exceed one page and how to optimize your resume for application tracking systems; •What hiring managers are looking for and how to make your resume stand out in a crowded applicant pool; •How to apply for a job and uncover opportunities by exploring new avenues; and •How to navigate a virtual career fair
