Interviewing: The New Look

Looking for a new job during a pandemic can be extremely difficult, but not impossible. There ARE companies that are currently hiring. However, the interview process for both the candidate and the employer may look a little bit different these days.

When preparing for your interview, you might ask yourself some of these questions:

  • How should I greet the interviewer if I can’t shake hands?
  • Does the interview have to be in-person or will it be virtual?
  • If it’s in person, will we both have to wear a mask?

It would be a good idea to check with the company to find out what their new protocols are during Covid-19. You should still do as much research as possible before the interview. Check to see if the company has any social media pages to learn as much as you can about them.

Below are a few articles about interviewing during the pandemic which includes tips and advice for job seekers during these tough times.
