COVID-19: Did You Lose Your Job? This Post Will Show You How To Land Another One by AbdulAkpan: 3:53am On May 30, 2020
Losing a job while battling to stay safe and alive in a global pandemic is a bit too much for anyone, regardless of social status or age, to deal with. However, that is a reality millions of people across different countries are facing as the COVID-19 pandemic keeps gaining momentum and claiming lives on a daily basis.

At Lingo Africa, the foremost human capital development platform in Abuja, we have received a lot of stories from our clients about how hard it has been for a lot of them who have lost a job or taken a pay cut during a global pandemic, with absolutely no support from their government.

It can all be so overwhelming. However, the goal of this write up is to encourage you to never lose hope, if you find yourself in this dire situation. It will get better.

During a global pandemic, it is wise to constantly use what you have to innovate and ensure you continue to create value so that you can find other opportunities that are out there.

In our experience as a human capital development platform, we have learned that one of the best ways to cope when you lose opportunities during a global pandemic, is to do some sort of introspection – find out what it is you want to project in terms of your skills and career options.

We all have our natural talents and interests, but the ability to choose the ones we can make a living from is a viable way to create our career paths. In essence, if you have interests in painting, social media management and coding, you should research which ones are currently in demand and push your profile out there to potential employers, who could hire you and pay you for your work.

This is very important. We have already written an article on the sectors that are still hiring during this global pandemic. So, what you should do is to find out which skills those sectors will find useful and start sending out both solicited and unsolicited applications showcasing your skills and the value you are offering, so, you can get opportunities.

Do not focus only on online applications, reach out to those within your network of professionals and push your profile out there.

Use social media to your advantage. Let your bio across all your social media platforms read the same thing – focusing on your skills and areas of expertise as well as your contact, so potential employers who find you online can reach out to you for opportunities. As you do this, avoid being limited to your geographical location, the world is moving towards remote work!

A successful 2020 is still possible.
