COVID and Unemployment

The Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, shook the United States to the core and continues to challenge our nation while we all adjust to this new normal. As everyone can attest to, the workforce is one of the most affected pieces our country needs to recover promptly. Although this transformation will not occur as swiftly as the 14.7 percent of unemployed workers (as of April 2020) needs, you can embrace this time with open arms and traverse this new terrain with the sight set on being part of the first wave of hires.

Data, data, data

The amount of data on the internet covering the job loss is exorbitant, from false to multifarious data and no one truly knows how quickly the employment rate will decrease. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) is how the U.S. Bureau of Labor calculates unemployment statistics on a monthly/yearly basis. Jobless rates rose sharply during the COVID-19 pandemic height in spring of 2020 among all major industries. The United States has not seen a drop in the labor force like this since January 1973.

At this point in May, we are observing the nation as a whole opening the brick-and-mortar businesses and slowly furloughed employees preparing to return to work. Surveys give us statistical data about how this extensive virus has influenced the national, and global, population; however they miss the true affect on individuals and the transformation on the job market. Regrettably, if you are one of the casualties, you have either been frustrated with the adventure of applying for unemployment or simply the daunting task of looking for work amid this chaos. There are very few of us who actually enjoy the laborious process of preparing, searching, and interviewing for a brand-new position. Changing jobs can be stressful, especially when the switch of professions was not your choice.
