Getting a response to a networking email can be difficult, especially during a pandemic. These three networking email templates were designed to make it easier for you to craft your message and get a response.
The best time to network is BEFORE a job is posted. You’re more likely to get a response to your request because employees aren’t involved in the hiring process yet. This is even true during a pandemic.
Well, we’re still here… working from home. And with new cases spiking across the United States, it doesn’t look like we’ll be going back to the office anytime soon. After four months of this, you may find it difficult to get things done. Perhaps you’ve developed some bad habits and less than optimal routines. Now is as good a time as any for a refresher course in how to stay productive while working from home.
As a new month begins, we enter the second half of 2020 continuing to struggle with the economic and societal effects of a global pandemic. Covid-19 is wearing on us, whether we have contracted the virus or not. Inundated daily by news of the political indecision, social controversy, and still rising infection rates, many of us are simply exhausted by this new reality. But perhaps most of all, we want to go back to work. The question, at this point some five months in, is how realistic is that goal?
In response to the current global crisis, companies have been forced to change nearly every aspect of how they do business. This has had a significant effect on the job market. Though many employees have been given the opportunity to work from home during mandatory lock-downs, many more have simply been laid off. And with some business closing for good in the face of unprecedented losses, still, others find themselves with no job at all. The competition for the few open jobs available has become intense. How will you stand out from the crowd?
Whether you have been staying home with your family, roommate, partner, pet, or entirely alone, it is hard to not feel some level of isolation in response to the state-at-home orders brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. Our daily lives have changed significantly over the last two months. And while working remotely may have been a dream scenario before this whole thing began, chances are the isolation is starting to get to you.
Covid-19 has had an unprecedented effect on how we live our lives from how we socialize to how we entertain ourselves… and yes, to how we work. In response to the global crisis, many countries have instituted some level of mandatory lock-down that has changed the way we do business. Some businesses have closed leaving employees without a steady source of income. Others have allowed employees to work from home. So, how are professional employees faring in this new reality?
