Looking for a job? There’s a common thread in our country! Many were laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19, and if you’re one of them—you’re probably looking around for something new!
If you’re freshly graduated and wondering what’s next, it may seem like the job market is doomed.
But there’s no need to feel this way. Certain industries are stronger than ever in our current economy. Just ask anyone who works in healthcare or a warehouse—people are still going to the doctor (in person or through telemedicine), and we all know online shopping is in full force. But these aren’t the only industries that are thriving.
So if you’re looking to find a great job fast, you have options. Just follow these tips for a leading provider of job openings in Nashville, Franklin, Gallatin, Lebanon, Murfreesboro, and the surrounding areas.
Ask for referrals.
If you’re like many people, you have a LinkedIn profile and plenty of contacts. Reach out to a few and ask if they know of any openings. You may find that people you know have heard of opportunities within their company and can refer you.
Reach out to companies directly.
Even if they don’t have a job advertised that matches your skillset, just shoot them an email or message through social media. It saves them a step and you never know who they may be looking for. They can also keep your information on file for future openings.
Check social media.
There are many platforms and employers are utilizing them to post job openings and recruit possible candidates. Try LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get started.
Contact a staffing agency.
This is perhaps the easiest way to find a job that is matched to your skills and qualifications. Staffing agencies are aware of both advertised and “hidden” jobs and can help you tap into a variety of possible openings.
