The FIT Staffing team wanted to reach out to check in on you and the one’s you care about. We felt it was important you know we’re available to help navigate through these uncertain times. We want to reassure you that despite the current challenges, our team is working from the safety of their homes and we are doing our utmost to be here for you. We’re still working and are ready to listen, consult and help you find your next career opportunity.
While we understand that COVID-19 has changed many aspects of everyone’s life, we’re happy to share our thoughts on how to help you navigate the job market with new ideas. Some of our candidates have reached out to us in recent days to plan ahead and posture themselves best for continuing their job search given the changing landscape. For example, getting tips on how to stand out in a virtual video interview- which quickly became the new norm! If ideas like that are something you’d like to connect about, we’re happy to share.
We appreciate you very much and we all wish you and your families health and safety during this difficult time. In spite of all of this uncertainty and change, we have been inspired by the way our community’s businesses and neighbors have come together to innovate, connect and care for one another. We will get through this together.
What Do Your Coworkers Need More Of?
Spoiler Alert: It’s starts with a “C” and ends with “ompassion”. It’s not always easy to be patient and understanding, especially with all that’s going on these days. Committing to keep practicing these emotions are what you and your coworkers may need more of. It’s easy to be judgmental considering many folks are dealing with high levels of stress and anxiety. Read more from Harvard Business Review about a few easy ways to remind yourself to deliberately lean into empathy and kindness.
What Have We Been Up To?
What says “Thank You!” better than 150 Friendly’s ice cream cups? Not much! At least that’s what we like to think. It was a delight for the team to deliver some sweet treats to a loyal partner of ours in Agawam.
There’s More! What Else Have We Been Up To?
Hanging out with NERDs – virtually, of course. The New England Regional Developers (NERD) Summit 2020 made a nimble pivot to taking this year’s event fully virtual! They create such a positive environment for people who work, or want to work, in web and related tech so if you didn’t make it this year, hopefully we’ll see you there next. We led a chat about Jobs for Nerds to a packed Zoom meeting room too! Another local tech education event we’re proud to sponsor. They even recorded all the event seminars. Maybe instead of binging Tiger King on Netflix you should check ’em out!
Let Us Help You Level Up Your Resume – And More!
Like we said, some of our candidates have reached out in recent days asking for a hand with posturing themselves best as they continue their job search given the rapidly changing landscape. We’d be delighted to connect about leveling up your resume so it tells a compelling story about why YOU are who they should hire. Please contact us if you’d like to connect!
