Finding Career Opportunities in a Downturn: KUPU Top Tips

Utilize new advances in technology

Start with companies that are actively hiring and match the skillset rather than job postings to improve job search efficiency. Research the hiring companies’ culture and the hiring process. Instead of submitting applications for every job posting, consider a directed, strategic job search; this saves time and prevents frustration. Leverage KUPU’s feature by filtering for companies expanding or hiring. Job seekers can also watch short company videos and working environment situations on job providers’ profiles to see if they will be a good fit for the company.

Update your digital profile

Uploading a resume to a customizable template and including a list of all professional achievements makes it easier for recruiters to find you and pull items specific to the job posting. On KUPU app, job seekers will be able to create video profile; a new way to introduce themselves to employers as now companies can screen its future employees rather than reading through CV paper. It can also help with profile matching and shortening recruitment times. Adding the completion of the “First-day” course can also help candidates stand out and help with onboarding processes.

Consider a Flexible working setting as an option

While the goal might be a full-time job, temporary work can bridge the gap. During a downturn, many companies hire new employees as contractors before making full-time employment decisions. Temporary work can add to resumes and provide a source of income. Searching for temporary or contract positions can broaden prospects.
