Well, watching the storm to pass is not an option. Nobody knows when the storm will go. Till then, one of the best strategies is to prepare yourself for tomorrow. According to the present times, you should focus on short term goals. When you are watching everything and you have the opportunity that you can change something, you should take action.
The businesses who are connected with entertainment, events, travel, hotels are struggling. Think about what you can do today with what you have. Plan for a week or next 30 90 days. Don’t worry about the future. This is about the present. Don’t think you cannot go out of the field and explore yourself. You can try everything and leave a mark. Use this opportunity to explore jobs for you and diversify yourself. Make more connections that will be helpful for you in the future.
You can do some interesting things for the short term:

Building a resume is both creativity and cleverness. All you need is to stand out in it. If you have that shinning polished resume with you, no one can ignore you. When applying for any type of job, do watch your resume and look if you included all the necessary skills in it. Even if you are searching for short term jobs, you can still practice the same strategies and present yourself creative, balanced and compelling.
We don’t know how long this ‘social distancing’ will extend, but we can take precautions. There will be no office or interviews, but still, you can prepare yourself for the virtual interviews. This will not delay the hiring process and you can still fill out the job positions. If you have interviews on call or video call, you should sound enthusiastic and make sure your environment should be noise-free.
