Can I interview during Covid-19?

Recently, candidates and clients have been asking this question, “Can I interview during Covid-19?” The answer is yes.

Companies are conducting interviews using online video tools such as Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, and Facetime. The process moves along seamlessly allowing some positions to be filled without an “on-site interview”. Others obviously will have to wait until it’s safe for a final interview.

The news media is blaring the news of millions of recent layoffs. While not as loud, there are many industries such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, retail, and other industries that need critical full-time and contract staff. For those candidates actively looking and for those who will be forced to look, there are opportunities out there. You may need to look at contract employment to hold you over until a good full-time opportunity opens. Remote opportunities will undoubtedly be a part of many job searches for both the employer and candidate in the months to come.
