Job Searching In Uncertain Times

Throughout this stay-at-home time of the pandemic, I have looked for inspirational or motivational quotes to help keep myself positive. It’s pretty hard right now, right? And honestly, there’s no quote that exists that encompasses all the things that are being felt due to the pandemic. It’s all brand new for all of us.

Things feel uncertain and unsteady. Are we going to continue to reopen? Are we going to watch unemployment numbers continue to rise? The stats don’t feel promising and the constant barrage of breaking news tells us it’s all dark and scary. While I don’t have a crystal ball to predict our future, I can offer some solid resources to help you get your feet under you.

Our Business and Career Team is offering our new initiative, Jobs Now. Email us at and we’ll answer your job search questions or review your resume Mon – Fri 9am-5pm. You can also email us to schedule a time to meet virtually. We’ll provide guidance on online job applications and connect you with resources in our community. Many organizations are focusing on unemployment, temporary jobs and financial education right now. There’s a lot of information out there and we’re working hard to cut through it to help you on your job search.
