Panel Presentation:
How to Manage Your Job Search in an Economic Downturn

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” Mike Tyson

There has been great damage wrought on the job market in the wake of COVID-19. We have already witnessed over 30 million jobs lost. Many industries may suffer badly for months to come. You’d be doing yourself a disservice to presume that your job is safe and sound. If you’ve lost your job or are concerned about the safety and long-term viability of your career, you need to plan ahead of time, get connected with your network and stay active! Bottom line: Do not wait around for the ax to fall?

Our Panelists will deliver tips and ideas to help you stay in the game and keep your career going.
