Over 36 million Americans have moved during the pandemic. Are you in this group? The new
remote job may not work. Or your office will bring people back much faster than you expected.
Or your big life change started with a change of address. Being in a new location with no
connections makes the job hunting process difficult (even before COVID 19 considers how it
has changed the current hiring process).
Thankfully, we pointed out five ways to find a job after moving home:
Improve your social media game
Global use of social media has increased since the pandemic, but it's not just Facebook and
Instagram. Business social media platforms report record levels of engagement, with LinkedIn
members growing to nearly 800 million users in 2021. It has potentially millions of profiles
looking for new employees.
Polish your profile and record your resume digitally. If your skills are right for you, an active
recruiter will get in touch and you can talk directly to your eye-catching company HR
professional. You can join a local group on the platform to build a network and see the
connections grow in new locations.
Research the new employment
Looking for a job in another city or state? Investigate the area to see who the big companies
are, which industries dominate, and which skills are most developed. Pay attention to the soft
skills you can sell. After the pandemic, they are becoming more and more important.
If your local job board job requires missing skills, don't be afraid to continue educating and
learn new skills.
Stay Open for Remote Work
According to our survey, 71% of workers around the world want to work more remotely in the
future than they did before the pandemic. And companies pay attention to it. By 2028, it is
estimated that nearly 3/4 of all teams in all departments will have remote workers.
By opening a remote job after moving, you are not restricted to your location. Also, if you're like
the average American who moved to the suburbs last year, you can work for a large company
headquartered in a big city (no commuting, no space to work from home).
Look at the temporary opportunities
There is no better time to try a temporary job than after moving, especially during a pandemic.
Before joining, you will not only get a glimpse of the new home job market first, but also make
connections related to your area and start learning new skills. Since the pandemic, 4,444
temporary workers have been in great demand. Since 2020, more than half of companies have
increased the use of temporary workers, and the number of temporary workers has increased
If you're ready to take the plunge but feel overwhelmed, don't exclude recruiters. Building
connections both locally and globally is our job, and companies are often working with us for
positions that may not be advertised on your local job board.
