Event: Job Hunting (or Hiring) in the Time of COVID

Margot Friedman

Job Hunting (or Hiring) in the Time of COVID 

Thursday, March 4, 2021 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern


This discussion will focus on how job searches have changed since the pandemic hit last year. Is it harder to find appropriate communications jobs? How do you network when there are no in person gatherings and you can’t invite someone to lunch? What are the best ways to interview by Zoom? And how do you get to know your new colleagues when you can’t meet them in person? 

PCDC members who have either recently been hired or hired staff will give you their best advice. And we will be joined by a career coach who can offer advice on getting hired during these challenging times. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and share your own tips and strategies. (Thanks to Tamar Abrams for having this event idea and organizing us. And thanks to our volunteer panelists.)
