May 19 – Navigating the Post-Pandemic Job Market

By Kurt Gardinier

Whether you are a new graduate starting out in your career, recently unemployed because of pandemic-related shutdowns or someone who has been on the job hunt for a while, the post-pandemic job market will be unfamiliar terrain. New economic realities and the highest unemployment rate in generations have changed the landscape of getting hired. So, what will it take to master the new job hunt and land your next position?

Join Kojo Nnamdi and a panel of guests for a discussion of navigating the post-pandemic job market, including a look at the state of the local economy. Kojo and the panel will also answer your job search questions live — whether you’re wondering how to effectively revamp your resume, how to be competitive in a crowded candidate pool or what kind of positions will be available across the Washington region in the weeks and months ahead.

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.
