It’s important to keep in mind that even with vaccines and the struggles of the pandemic fading away, the notion of a “normal work day” is still a long way off. For many organizations, the lessons and infrastructure built in 2020 will be baked into their operations long into the future.
This means that people making career transitions will have to adapt to new standards. What worked before may be very different now. To help you prepare, here are a few ways that job-hunting will be different in the years to come than what you may be used to - and advice on how to adapt.
Recruiting Will Be More Automated
As remote work becomes a widely-accepted mainstay of the corporate world, companies are shifting to a hiring model designed for remote workers. This means talent can come from anywhere in the world. From a company standpoint, this makes things a lot more complicated.
To simplify the process, expect recruitment efforts to rely even more on automation and AI. Companies already frequently use applicant tracking systems to scan resumes for keywords, but soon we may see automated systems in the interview stages as well.
