I know job hunting is hard and is really stressful, especially during these difficult times where more than 4 million workers have lost their jobs and struggling everyday to meet their needs. We are hoping that these kinds of resources can give you even a little bit of hope for you to stay positive on job hunting. You can browse with other online job sites and keep an eye on the job postings that fit your skills and experiences.
Also, you can use this time to discern on the career path that you want. There are free online resources you can take to improve your skills and to guide you on how you can craft a better resume to increase your chances. I will be publishing an article about it in the next few days. Just remember, it's okay to feel down sometimes. Just take the time to breathe to avoid burn out. Build Nation will always be here to try and help provide helpful resources that can at least provide hope. Best of luck!
