How to Job Search While Staying at Home

By Randy Wooden, Director, Professional Center by Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina

While most of us are living under stay-at-home orders, we can still continue our job searches. Internet access on a phone, tablet or computer are important so we can get on job boards and complete online applications. Applying for jobs online is common, but the change is in what may happen next. You may do a video interview rather than stop by the company to meet the employer for a conversation. Indeed has a great resource for preparing for a virtual hiring event.

While you are at home, you might want to explore careers or build skills and conduct online job searches. These resources are available at no cost to you. If you’re on LinkedIn, engage your connections to encourage an employer to review your application.

In addition, Goodwill® has an exciting partnership with Indeed. Use our dedicated page to post your resume, get job search tips and more.

Your next job may be just a few clicks away!
