As businesses across the globe are continuing to stop the spread of COVID-19, remote hiring has become the new norm. Here are some tips on how to find a remote job during this pandemic.
Recruiters that work for staffing/recruitment firms have personal and on-going relationships with top companies and know when jobs are available even before they are public. By working with a staffing company you are able to get your resume in front of the hiring manager faster if your qualifications match the job requirements. Staffing firms work with you and help you find the best job that fits the client and you. So, if one job doesn’t work, they will work with you until they find something that does.
