COVID-19 Resources for Job Seekers

The coronavirus pandemic has caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs. Many others are seeing their hours or pay cut. At the same time, new hiring has slowed temporarily in most industries. 

But tens of thousands of employers are still hiring despite the pandemic. And thousands more are expanding hiring precisely because the crisis has caused demand for their goods and services to surge. 

For example, soaring sales and rapid user growth are creating new employment opportunities in the following kinds of companies:

  • E-commerce companies
  • Remote work software companies
  • Video game companies
  • Grocery stores
  • Pharmacies
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Warehousing services
  • Delivery driver services
  • Home exercise equipment producers
  • At-home beauty product producers
  • Meal kit delivery services
  • Online entertainment companies

To help you find those opportunities, ZipRecruiter has placed an “Actively Hiring During COVID-19” banner on job postings where employers have verified that they are currently extending offers and an “Urgent” banner on job postings where requested by employers. ZipRecruiter also highlights jobs that are new.

So that you get through the downturn and your job search successfully, healthily, and happily, we have collected some tips and resources to help.
