The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the global economy, resulting in millions of newly unemployed people seeking jobs. Meanwhile, businesses are facing a wide range of challenges, from handling a sudden surge or downturn in recruiting to communicating to current and future workers their response to the crisis. To help, in response to COVID-19 and its impact on jobs, hiring and working around the world, Glassdoor has introduced several new product features for job seekers and employers.
Glassdoor’s goal is to help people find a career and a business that they enjoy, according to Christian Sutherland- Wong. He added that, in service to their mission, their teams have been pivoting to address some of today’s biggest challenges facing people and businesses. He shared his hope that the new features will allow people to find employment opportunities right now and provide some relief and trust as they navigate this unpredictable job market and adjust to a whole new way of working.
How is Glassdoor Helping Job Seekers?
For work seekers Glassdoor has introduced a dedicated COVID-19 job search site. This integrated job search tool lets people concentrate their job search on the latest open positions across various sectors and companies that actively recruit, or even experience a increase in hiring. Through job search feeds such as on-demand jobs, home employment, recruiting agencies, supermarket and pharmacy jobs, distribution and warehouse jobs, and health care jobs, people will be able to explore opportunities related to their position and expertise, all in one unified hub.
As a global leader in career and business perspectives, Glassdoor has created a blog content library to support job seekers looking for work and helping workers adjust to a new way of working.
While in these challenging times many employers have scaled back or paused hiring, hundreds of employers are on a hiring surge. Now job seekers can actively and aggressively recruit companies and can filter their search by city, sector, job title and job feature. Job hunters will also see companies recruiting spikes on individual job openings as they browse Glassdoor by job title.
