A Good Time to Update Your CV

During lockdown there are many still working and rushed off their feet. Others are working at home reasonably normally, but millions have been furloughed.

Take the time at the very least to update your CV to reflect what you have achieved recently. It is also worth taking a step back to consider what story it  tells, and what impression you want to give.

You never know when you might need it, particularly in the present climate.

Let’s Hear it for Temps

Last week I was in a room with half a dozen people about to start temporary work. (The reason will become obvious over the next few posts).

What struck me was that they included a long term temp (3 years with one company) and two airline cabin crew. Despite all the news about coronavirus and its effects on jobs, I have seen very little about its effects on temps and seasonal workers. Yet they are not being furloughed but dismissed or not taken on at all. And seasonal workers may lose the entire season before there is some semblance of normality. That can mean a career gone.
