In order to compete for a new job, you’ll have to understand the lay of the land. And due to COVID-19, you’ll see the changing landscape of jobs, interviewing methods, and strategies for finding new jobs.
As you take a look at the changing landscape of our world of work and what we’ve experienced since February – how we work, where we work, the skills we need and a shift in jobs that need to be filled, it becomes apparent that things look and feel very different.
You’ll need to change your assumptions about how to find a job, how interviews work and what employers are looking for.
This week’s summary features articles about:
- Interviewing remotely (via video)
- Crowdsourcing job search help
- Growing jobs and skillsets
- The culture shift of working remotely
- LinkedIn’s #Opentowork update
- A new type of to-do list
- Training resources from Microsoft and LinkedIn
What we know is that people and organizations that can adapt are more likely to survive and thrive.
It is my hope and wish that each of us embrace the changing landscape and thrive in the new normal we find ourselves in.
