Job Searching During Difficult Times  
With all the uncertainty in the present economy, individuals are wondering what is next for them with their career. Whether you are facing reduced hours, temporarily laid off or let go, it is a difficult process to endure.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, some companies are still continuing to hire. This session will provide you with some strategies and suggestions on how to equip you better during this time period and for when the economy turns around. We will provide insights on how to mentally cope throughout the job-hunting process, tips on how to identify and work towards your next career progression during this time period.
