Tips for getting a job amid pandemic

Good Morning CT at Nine

(WTNH)– During this time when unemployment is at an all-time high and a lot of people are looking for jobs, it’s important to remember how to sell yourself.

Author Jason Harris talks to us about his book, ” The Soulful Art of Persuasion.” Harris suggests these tips:

  • Be original. 
    • Your quirks and unique attributes are your greatest strength. 
    • Show your true, authentic self throughout every step of the interview process. 
  • Be generous
    • Answer that LinkedIn message, have that virtual coffee meeting, write a recommendation or referral, submit their resumes to companies you know are hiring, connect people within your network you think would benefit from knowing each other. 
  • Be empathetic 
    • This is a pandemic so no one knows the right move. There is no rulebook. You never know what another person is going through especially right now.
  • Be soulful. 
    • If you are unemployed, now is the perfect time to reflect on your true passions. Make a list of the things you’re passionate about, and another list with all your skills; then try to find something you can do that incorporates both.
