How you can find a job during the COVID-19 crisis via Fast Company

How you can find a job during the COVID-19 crisis via Fast Company

No one could have predicted our current reality as part of the 2020 employment forecast. As of March 26, over three million people have filed unemployment claims this week alone—the most in U.S. history. The stock market is in turmoil, drastically plummeting on an almost daily basis. The national government has now stepped in, offering bridge loans to small businesses to help them retain their employees.
 
We’re facing unprecedented times, and no one knows how long this will last. Since we cannot predict when the worst will be over or even when the virus will be contained, your best strategy is to focus on short-term solutions that will get you through this challenging time.

Doing nothing is not an option.

After COVID-19 – 3 in a series – The Great Reset 2020 and You!

After COVID-19 - 3 in a series - The Great Reset 2020

Aleksandar Cvetanovic

As with all global or national calamities, COVID-019 is going to cause a huge “reset” in its wake. Like 9/11, the 1918 Pandemic, Hurricanes, Tornados and more, people take stock in their lives and, in some cases, discover there is something more important than what they were doing before the crisis. It is only natural when faced with your mortality to reevaluate your life. What would people say about you had you died at that moment? How would your obituary read?

Alfred Nobel had a similar, personal, epiphany when he awoke one morning to find his obituary in place of his brother’s, who had died the day before. The newspapers obituary was scathing. It called him the “mercchant of death” and said “Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday.” Alfred created the Nobel Prize as a way of recovering his reputation, and perhaps, purging himself of a small bit of his guilt over all the harm his creations had caused.

While I don’t believe that any of us carry the guilt the Nobel did, we can still take a good example from his horrible experience.

  • Are you accomplishing what you want in life?
  • Are you affecting the world, both your small, local, world and the world at large?
  • What small concrete actions can you take to have that effect?
  • What long postponed change do you need to make NOW?
  • What is stopping you?
  • Why?

The world is being turned upside down in the wake of COVID-19 and instead of worrying about it, perhaps we can imagine how we can use this Great Reset to craft a new day, a new life and a new world for everyone!

Things that will be in large supply once this is over…

  • Retail/Restaurant/Commercial Real Estate
  • Talent — in all fields
  • Stimulus Money
  • Businesses looking to grow again

What can you build from these? Is it time to start your own business? Is it time to move to a better career?

You want to start your plans now so you are ready to move as soon as the opportunity provides itself. It will be the first movers that benefit the most because they will have access to the best unemployed/underemployed talent in their fields and, hopefully, stimulus money before it runs out.

Don’t Wait! Start Planning Today!

After COVID-19: A little blue sky thinking for a post-COVID19 world

A little blue sky thinking for a post-COVID19 world

Ok, a little “blue sky” thinking for  a time when this crisis (or at least the worst of this crisis) is over…

  • What are you planning for when restrictions begin to be lifted?
  • What will you change?
  • What will remain the same?
  • What new ideas/projects/habits will you begin?
  • What are you going to do strictly for yourself and your family?
  • How will the world be different for you?
