John’s Answer

Carmen before you start to job hunt, update your resume and your LinkedIn profile. Be sure to include your skills as well as your school history. Take some time to research the job market and the positions that are available for applicants with your qualifications.

Once you know what you want, it’s time to figure out what the companies you'd like to apply with. Investigating the company’s website is a great way to get a feel for their company culture, figure out what questions they commonly ask in interviews, and discover what salary you can expect. Once you’ve found a handful that seem like a good match, apply! It may be a little bit more work up front, but companies will appreciate the extra effort you’ve put into ensuring that you’re the right person for the job.

Hi Carmen, it all depends of what type of job you are looking for. Do you want part time or full time. Do you want an internship job or a contract job. Depending on your skills -it’s important that you put a good resume together. If you don’t have a resume no-w I recommend to do some research on google for a start up jo, our customer service resume and create your own. Always make sure that you outline your recognition, specific skills that you have - such as how fast your type,.how is your customer service skills, teamwork, have your worked on any projects.

In today’s world- you need to make sure that you create accounts on job cites,and search for your job field and apply. Some create job cites are monster.com; careerbuilder. Com, indeed.com. These are the basis steps to begin your job search.

A long time again- I was able to walk into the financial center and ask if they are hiring- perhaps you can still try this - it won’t hurt- most Financial institutions are always looking for great talents and recruiting- so if you walk in -they might share with you that there is a career night happening, or recommend to send them your resume and they will refer you to the recruiting department. So, I recommend try all different ways to apply- it will give you more chances.




I have a resume but you're right I don't think it's up to date. carmen C.

Nadia’s Answer

Being communicative, quick learner, skillful, a good listener are great features, but are usually considered as soft skills. They can give an advantage during an interview, but to determine the exact direction of your career there are some questions that need to be answered.
What are your priorities, besides getting a job quickly? What's your educational background, certificates? What salary range do you expect or would accept? Do you have any other responsibilities, such as taking care of your parents, home, children etc.?
Based on my experience, especially in such difficult times, most of recruitment processes are taking time as companies want to make good decisions and justify new expenses = hiring a new employee.
From your side, to speed up any recruitment process, it's crucial to prepare yourself. Good resume, cover letter and linkedin profile are the baseline.
I see that you're based in Colorado Springs, so check below resources:

There are currently a lot of retail stores, food delivery, and other essential businesses that are hiring on the spot. Also, make sure to utilize LinkedIn and other Job sites - they can be very helpful! You could also try signing up with some temp agencies. In my experience, many of the positions offered with temp agencies can be temp to permanent positions.

Riley’s Answer

This depends on whether you have a college degree or not. If you do not have a degree, one great option to make a good amount of money if you are a very social person is either working as a server or bartender. These jobs are pretty easy to train for, do not require a lot of experience, and pay pretty well depending on the restaurant you choose. As for getting hired, I have found that the quickest way is to just print out a bunch of copies of your resume and apply to every restaurant within a 10-mile radius of your house. If you apply to at least 10 restaurants, you will be very likely to hear back from one of them. This obviously applies to any job, but serving and bartending restaurants nice establishments are known to pay well.

Definitely lots of hiring in the delivery service industry (InstaCart, UberEats, etc.), but it's a challenging time time find employment. Online sources such as LinkedIn or ZipRecruiter can work but I have found that the most likely recipe for success is through your existing network. Ask around, ask friends and family, find that one "maybe" opportunity and push for it until you are told yes or no. Hope this is helpful.

The New York State government is as I have heard currently hiring. Especially the Department of Labor which is fielding unemployment. You should go on the NY State employment website and look around.
