Invest in your CV and submit on recruitment channel

No matter what you choose, working with a recruitment firm, or directly applying with businesses, preparing carefully for your resume, and for interviewing with recruiters is a very important step. 

Many candidates or newly graduated in the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic should have more time to stay home. This is the chance to spend more time taking care of your resume.

To succeed in this step, your CV should make an impression on the employers. Your CV online will be saved in the data and transferred to the recruitment network. This could help you get more chances to have work in the future.

Choose a well-known recruitment online platform

The best way to help you succeed in applying for a recruitment platform to help you have more opportunities is to choose the famous recruitment channel. The famous recruitment channel not only offers job seekers the large job vacancies but also has a large connection with employers that can connect the employers with the right talent employees, this also means job seekers have more chances of finding their suitable job.

Up to the present time after the COVID 19 effect, the number of recruitment registrations of businesses is decreasing and many people are requesting unemployment benefits. Online recruitment channels such as VietnamWorks and high-level recruitment Navigos Search can assist job seekers most effectively at this moment as well as bring the best connection between employers and candidates.

Selecting home-based work

Freelancers or online jobs were much more attractive in this period. Candidates should prefer to look for online jobs, collaborators working from home. At the same time, the process of "online interview" and "online probation" should be flexible, if possible. This has not only worried about the two sides' concerns about the disease but also guaranteed the quality of work they were in charge of.

Besides, candidates could choose part-time or seasonal positions to earn for life before finding a more suitable job. Taking a part-time job is not synonymous with stopping looking for other better positions. You can connect with a headhunter or an HR search firm if you feel it hard to find a job in your industry at the current time.
