Pandemic Job Hunting

  • Second, look for work. Even if you are eligible to collect unemployment, you will not receive as much as if you are working. Your earnings will be offset to make you whole if you are limited in your hours/ compensation.
  • Third, humble yourself on what you would be paid and what you are qualified for. This is a short moment in time and a temporary job does not reflect on your entire career. The most respectable money you can get is the one you earned.
