New Hope for Job Seekers as Employers Are Slowly Coming Back
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world felt its impact that crumbled economies across continents. Businesses were severely affected, some even closed down while thousands of employees lost their jobs. With several countries now easing up on restrictions—some are even lifting lockdowns—many of us hope to see the pandemic gone and waking up to our normal day-to-day ways of life. As we wake up every day hoping this coronavirus will be behind us very soon, we have to do so while sanitizing, maintaining social distance, and doing anything else that will help us get to end safely and strong enough to resume work.
Nearly three months into lockdown, countries that have eased such measures with an intent to reopen and recover from the impact of this global outbreak have paved way for employers to hire. That is, businesses across industries are expected to gradually resume while adhering to protocols laid down to curbing the spread. While more governments are giving relief in some lockdown restrictions, businesses, and organizations are taking small steps towards reviving their normal operations but within the laid down protocols. This is the best 2020 news for those who lost their jobs, those are on the verge of losing their jobs, and those that were just about to start their career when the Covid-19 disrupted the world economic order.
Hope for Jobseekers
The world is slowly coming back to normalcy despite some special measures in place. Those who lost their jobs are now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. With the steps that are being taken now, it won’t be long since jobs start knocking in everyone’s doors.
A New Dawn in the #NowHiring
With this social media era, we’ve all used a hashtag to troll the latest news, headlines, trending topics, and juicy fun stuff. We have also used a hashtag to express our moods and emotions, but a hashtag has never been so powerful before as it is now for anyone looking for a new job.
Job seekers can benefit from LinkedIn—a social media platform that connects job seekers with potential employers.

Employers are now using LinkedIn and the #NowHiring to reach prospective employees that suit specific job positions.
