During this difficult time, when many people lost their jobs, looking for jobs and hiring looks a little bit different. Rest assured, there are companies that are still hiring, and there are companies that hold virtual job fairs.

From Indeed.com

Virtual hiring events are a great way for employers and jobseekers to connect, even if they aren’t in the same physical location. Hiring is a human process, and they would like to talk with you online (either through chat, on the phone, or video) to see if you’re a fit!
