#Adulting: Staying Relevant with Companies Hiring

We’ve all seen the news reports…the economy is majorly suffering right now, thousands of people are getting laid off, businesses are shutting their doors…With everything going on right now, it may be tough to stay positive and consistent in your job search.

As a note of encouragement, there are companies that are still hiring amidst the global pandemic, some of whom are actually ramping up their recruitment efforts right now.  If you’re job hunting, it’s in your best interest to stay up-to-date on news within your industry. What major players are leading the charge during the nationwide shutdown?
