CareerBuilder CEO gives key advice for landing a job amid COVID-19

CareerBuilder CEO Irina Novoselsky joins 'Influencers with Andy Serwer' to break down the best advice for job applicants during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn.

Video Transcript

IRINA NOVOSELSKY: Make yourself as available as possible. So make sure that you are where recruiters are looking, that you are on the top job sites, that you are attending virtual networking events, that you're attending virtual hiring events. And sometimes that means that you might get a few rejections, but you're going into their queue, you're going into their pipeline.

And one of the things that we do with all of our clients is we re-engage past candidates. The majority of our matches are based on our recommendation engine, which reengages candidates. So making sure that you're out there and in front, and also, again, highlighting the skill set.

And we talked about this a little bit, but the economy is changing. Rules are changing. Postal meter readers and-- used to be one of the biggest rolls out there, and that doesn't exist anymore. And so how do you pivot that? If you're in a role that no longer has a lot of demand, how do you make sure that you are considered for your skill set into other industries?
