Questions Submitted

Here and Now

  • I want to be sensitive to what all employers are facing now, but I also want to be considered for jobs as the economy reopens. What’s the right time – and the right approach – for me to reach out to them?
  • What’s the best way to find a job now?
  • What are the specific things that I can do to position myself for success now?
  • If a company went on a hiring freeze in the middle of my interview process, how can I stay top-of-mind until the position is open again?
  • What are other ways we can continue to build our network during this stagnate time aside from scheduling quick calls with professionals and reaching out to them via LinkedIn?
  • Would starting a Master’s degree of some sort during this time make a pre-professional more attractive in the job market?
  • If I have a job, should I be asking about the status of my position now, wait until things calm down, or wait for my employer to reach out to me?
  • What can I do to look and present my best in a Zoom interview?

Future Impacts

  • How will COVID-19 affect the job search process moving forward?
  • How do you think business structures will change in the post pandemic world, and what role will recent graduates, or entry level employees, play in this structure?
