You are listening to Trinity employment’s, a player matchmaker podcast starring your host and the cofounder of Trinity employment specialists, Cory Minter. Hello and welcome
back to the A player matchmakers where we’re always trying to find different ways to add value to job seekers and employers. Today’s podcast is how to find work during this covert 19 wow. Well, there’ve been 30 million people who have applied for unemployment benefits. Currently. Trinity, we’re having a really tough time just trying to get people to want to go to work because the unemployment benefits were so great, but if you started it day one, right at three months, this $600 extra week is going to falter off and they used to have it to where you didn’t have to do job searches. Now you do. This is going to become a reality to people that you can’t sit at home all day and eventually this unemployment is going to run out. So you’re going to have a lot of people starting to look for OKC Medical Staffing.
You know, and when it’s clear right now that this shelter at home, you know, these requirements, they’re going to disappear eventually, but it’s not going to be overnight. And there’s still a lot of companies that are not getting back to work. Do you know? And I know that just because of sales are, you know, trying to go back and do sales companies are just not operating the way that they normally have been. You know, many if not a majority of people who have been laid off are furloughed or cut off from there, you know, their normal livelihood. You know, they just don’t have reserves to continue there to pay their bills. And you know, although unemployment and you know, the emergency, the emergency aid is helping a lot of folks for a large population, the financial support, it’s just not enough to keep the cost of living, you know, or, you know, some of them just gotten sucked into a black hole of paperwork trying to figure this out, you know OKC Medical Staffing has your back?
And so what do you do in the meantime? Well, you hustle. I think you know, and this isn’t about hustling people or cheating people, it’s about figuring out your hustle to get what you want out of this. Because listen, there are going to be opportunities that present themselves, but I’ll bet you money that those that hustled the most and the hardest are going to be the people that stand out. It’s going to be, it’s going to be about how to your time to figure out how to get the very best and get back into this world of work in a position that you want to be in and keep in mind, depending on your situation, you might have to take a job that is out of this line of work that you’re used to, at least temporarily. You know, it can just be a myriad for a lot of people and some people are going to be, you know, too young to have seen an economic downturn. They don’t have a support system. Americans, according to data, have saved less than ever before. So most people are living paycheck to paycheck. I saw a document showing that 70% of people are living paycheck to paycheck.
You know, and so this is for people. Maybe, you’ve been in a job for a long time and lost touch with the employment hustle on how it works. Well, it’s different now. I can promise you with all of these digital things, you’re going to feel like your resumes going into a big black hole. But you know, some people are going to be banking on their employer getting back up and running sooner than what they thought. But I’ll tell you, a lot of companies are going to sit back and look at, look at the company and may change courses. So you know, what are some things to do? I’ve got some ideas for you to just consider. Um, you know, you need to know that this is going to be temporary. Um, your goals to be the best OKC Medical Staffing.
You need to be mitigating how much permanent damage has been done to you because, of this temporary situation. Sorry, I tongue-tied. How much permanent damage is what I’m going to say is being done to you because of this temporary situation. You know, taking a new job during this time does not mean you can’t return to the career that you were in the middle of the building at a later time. And it’s just really important to note this is temporary. It’s not going to be humiliating if you have to take something outside of where you want to be at for a little bit. Um, next thing is put, put a little glue glitter against the glue if, if you don’t have that
great nest egg or family financial support to help you ride out the storm, you can’t afford to be crazy picky right now and you can apply for a lot of different options and you never know. It might be something that you get into that is going to be a, is going to be a huge asset to you having that experience later. But you can apply for a lot more than you would normally. Um, and that might create some opportunities for you. Um, but don’t get me wrong, I’m not a huge, big, big advocate for going, going after what you want. You know, I mean, I don’t want you to not go after what you want, but also want to make sure that the hierarchy of needs is being met. Like you’ve got to eat and you got to have a roof over your head during the interim.
And so putting glitter against the glues, just the act of going after every possible opportunity until something works out for you. A third thing is to use all available resources, all available resources. If you look around, you’ll see that while many industries have come crashing to a halt, there been a lot of industries that have done very well. I’ve got a guy, I’ve got a good buddy and he runs in it firm and everyone now is trying to work from home. So his company is very valuable and so he’s had not any concerns at all. You know, there’ve been many jobs cropping up across the globe for remote work and increased demand in grocery delivery. Um, healthcare is not doing well now, but there’s going to be some opportunities pop up there. Um, you know, but people are looking for all sorts of things. Um, glass door, that’s uh, the chief product officer Annie Pearl says some of the greatest challenges facing job seekers during these tough times include not knowing what job opportunities are even available or where to focus their job search with our OKC Medical Staffing.
And to help with this glass door launch several new tools that you can be aware of and a virtual event to help job seekers quickly find open jobs available. Now. Um, and so you’ve got the job search hub through the glass door. Um, hiring surge Explorer is another, um, title where it filters to find companies that are actively hiring for multiple roles. And then you have the free virtual event that is regular. Um, the last one they had was on May 6th. They’re going to do another one upcoming. Um, and you know, you want to see the hustle as a practice of discipline. Practicing the hustle of getting work is a strong discipline that can support your future confidence when taking career risks. Listen, if you can go out and get what you want during this time when it comes to job searching, you can do it any time ever.
And I think that there are some great opportunities out there for the right person. Um, you need to know that you’re resourceful. Um, if fear and anxiety have been a part of your emotions, which has been for a lot of people. And one sad thing is that the suicide rate is that our all-time high right now because of so many people out of work and just not knowing what to do. And I hate that people get to a place where they’re like the best way out is to end it all. And I, my heart and empathy go out with people that get there in their mind because it’s just not an accurate mindset because this is temporary, but your, your mind is primed for closure versus openness when you’re in this pandemic mode and you need to trust that you’ve got the tools to navigate this chapter of your life in with the best OKC Medical Staffing.
The more you focus on what you’re going to do to work this out, the better it’s going to be. You focus on positive and you’re going to get more of that. If you focus on the negative, you’re going to get a lot more of that and it’s, you have to be very careful with your mind. Um, none of this means that it’s going to be easy, but it also means that you’ve got options and they might not be the best options that you would want, but they’re good options. They might not be the same options you had a month ago, but they’re good options and the hustle can help you to get there. So listen, I would love for you to reach out to Trinity. We would love, we want more than anything to help those in need right now. Um, we just don’t want to see people going into anxiety, crisis, depression, all of those things that can come with the job, with a lack of job. But if you can change your mindset, when you change your perspective, you change your circumstances. When you focus on the positive, you’ll find more of it. If you focus on the negative, you’ll find more of it, and we want to help people to achieve a healthy mindset and help them through this process with our relationships.
