The need for social distancing during the COVID-19 public health crisis sometimes requires job and internship seekers to adjust their search strategies. Some individuals may have already experienced the canceling or postponing of some employment opportunities.
Career experts recommend that students align their job or internship search with organizations that are hiring.
While you may have dreamed of working for a specific employer, contact them to determine if they are hiring at this time. Communicate with a recruiter, check out the organization’s website, or contact the Republic Bank Foundation’s ICG for assistance.
If an employer you are interested in pursuing is not hiring at this time, maintain the relationship but align your current search with organizations that are hiring. Click on the resources below for further support.
