This is an exceptional time that we are undergoing during the lockdown period of 2020. I need not explain the emotions that I know we are all feeling, but I will let you know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Before the lockdown I noticed a sharp increase in the number of temporary workers needed and I think this trend will continue after the lockdown as a lot of essential services will need extra help. For those who have lost their jobs this may offer some relief.
I also believe that some of the essential services who are providing the nation with sanitizing staff or products will be booming during this time.
As always, sectors such as finance, supply chain, medical, IT and manufacturing will still be popular with available vacancies. Try to focus your job search in those sectors.
There is some good to this lockdown:
I suggest that during this time you register your CV on as many job portals as possible, just to have it easily accessible for hiring manager and recruiters. Make sure your LinkedIn is up to date! We always use LinkedIn for recruiting.
Stay strong and remember that things will get better!
