5 Habits to adopt for your job search during the Coronavirus period





This is an unprecedented and difficult situation which we are all living. My thoughts are with those who are fighting for their lives and for the health workers who are treating them.

We may not be feeling motivated (and this is normal), however, it is a period which will end. For the moment, we must remain patient, safe and continue to advance.

5 Tips

-         Remain Positive.
-         Get up in the morning like you normally would.
-         Take the time for you and your family.
-         Follow up with your contacts and keep active online.
-         Join podcasts and webinars that interest you.

And finally, remember, it will end, and decisions will be taken later.

Keep safe. Take care.

Reader Recommendations

"I enjoy reading your blog as it gives very useful information to people like me – working on restarting his/her professional life after a period of expatriation. Your useful tips help to deal with this situation in a stress-free mode and help to methodically face few challenges. I highly recommend Brid’s articles to anyone who knows they have to do something to find a new job, but they don’t know how to do it”.

"During a period of professional reorientation where I needed financing, I used the advice of Brid to write my Skills-Based CV. Thanks to her advice, my Skills-Based CV convinced the financing organization. I highly recommend her articles".

"As an expat myself coming to the end of my current contract and planning to return home to Ireland, I found the article "La Perle Rare", particularly helpful. I will soon be searching for job opportunities. Undoubtedly, I do have to distinguish myself from the crowd. Following the suggestions and advice given by Brid, with self-reflection I discovered that I have an abundance of highly developed soft skills. These are skills I had taken for granted for so long never thinking they would highlight my uniqueness to a potential employer. In the past, my focus was on my qualifications and work experience. Although this focus is important, there is room for self-promotion too. Now, I shall forge ahead with a renewed sense of myself and the confidence to promote my other strengths in interviews. Thank you, Brid. I strongly recommend Brid’s blog to expats who find themselves seeking new job opportunities “. Fiona

Je recommande vivement Brid pour son enthousiasme, son dynamisme et son professionnalisme". Frédéric
