The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the global economy, leading to millions of newly unemployed people looking for work. Meanwhile, companies are experiencing a wide range of challenges, from managing a sudden surge or decline in hiring to communicating their response to the crisis to current and potential employees.
To help, we introduced several new product features for job seekers and employers in response to COVID-19 and its impact on jobs, hiring, and work around the world. Our new centralized COVID-19 resources page provides tips and advice for job seekers, employees, and companies navigating challenges.
“At Glassdoor, our mission is to help people find a job and company they love. We feel we have a responsibility to help people feel informed during these uncertain times by providing useful and timely insights as they navigate their job search and career,” said Christian Sutherland- Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer. “In service of our mission, our teams have pivoted to address some of the biggest challenges that people and businesses are facing today. We hope these new features help people find job opportunities available right now and provide some relief and confidence as they navigate this unprecedented job market and adjust to an entirely new way of working.”
Helping Job Seekers and Employees
“Some of the greatest challenges facing job seekers during these tough times include not knowing what job opportunities are even available, or where to focus their job search,” said Annie Pearl, Glassdoor chief product officer. “Leveraging Glassdoor’s deep insights on jobs and companies, we are aiming to help solve those challenges by connecting people with the most timely and relevant job opportunities available. In addition, we’re enabling employers with new tools to help them clearly communicate how they’re responding to the crisis and how they’re supporting their own workforce.”
- COVID-19 Job Search Hub: We recently launched a dedicated COVID-19 job search hub for job seekers. This centralized job search tool helps people focus their job search on the latest open jobs across multiple industries and companies that are actively hiring, or even experiencing a surge in hiring. With job search feeds like in-demand jobs, work from home jobs, companies with hiring surges, grocery and pharmacy jobs, delivery and warehouse jobs, and healthcare jobs, people will be able to explore available opportunities that are relevant to their location and skills, all in one centralized hub.
