Calling 2020 a dreadful year is an understatement. Since the rise of the Covid-19 pandemic, several lives have been turned upside down -- not only for those who have contracted the virus but also the people who have lost their jobs and sources of income. Since the nationwide lockdown in March, several businesses are forced to close down because of the lack of profit coming in. This is causing the economy to slowly fall down as everyone is still figuring out how to adjust to the current state of the world.
Texas, in particular, is the second state that has the most cases of coronavirus with around 825,000 infected citizens since October -- California leading with 851,000 cases based on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker. As the number of cases rises in the Lone Star State, the unemployment rate starts to fluctuate. According to the Texas Workforce Commission, the unemployment rate in the state was 6.8% last August, which is already an improvement from its peak of 13.0% last June. However, these current numbers are still alarming and millions of Texans are still jobless as we speak.
If you are one of them, do not lose hope as there are a lot of jobs out there, either permanent and temporary, that you can grab as long as you put your mind to it and continue to search for opportunities. We are here to help you by providing some tips on how to find vacant jobs and how to get hired immediately amidst this pandemic.
One way to have better luck in finding job opportunities is by applying with a staffing agency. They cater to specific companies that are currently searching for temporary and permanent employees of different skills and experiences. Engaging with them first opens up several job offers that suit your capabilities. Luxor Temporary Jobs are specifically aiming to help unemployed citizens around the Texas area get into the workforce again, even just for a temporary position during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your cover letter will serve as your introduction to the hiring Manager. Make sure that you’ll be able to provide a good first impression by writing as specific to the company and the job as possible. Although recycling old letters could be faster, it is something that you should avoid. Indicate the skills that will prove that you’re capable of the position. You can catch their attention and make them remember you by putting in some unique position-related experiences and expertise.
Always update your resume. It must indicate the most relevant information and experiences that are related to the position you’re applying for and those that you think will make you stand out. However, a resume should only be one-page long -- two, at most. Make sure to edit it to attract the specific company that you’re trying to apply in.
Interviews nowadays are either conducted through phone or video calls. Either it’s an in-person or video interview, you have to be as presentable as possible. If it’s a virtual interview, position your device in a well-lit room with a plain and simple background.
As always, you want to leave a good impression so that you’ll stand out to the interviewer. Answer with enthusiasm so they’ll know that you’re interested in the job. Just be yourself and answer the questions as directly and as honestly as possible
