How to Communicate COVID Impacts in Your Job Marketing Materials
The pandemic has most likely impacted your goals, plans, expectations, and strategies for moving your career forward. Have you had to delay a paper because you were unable to collaborate in person with a team? Have you seen your schedule upended? Has you had to shift or pivot your research plan? You are not alone. But how do you ensure that future employers and collaborators understand how the pandemic has impacted your professional outputs and perhaps that this last year is not fully emblematic of who you really are?

In this session, we will discuss strategies and tactics for efficiently and honestly communicating how the pandemic has impacted your career outputs. We will address specific avenues for articulating what you did and faced on your CV, resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, research and teaching statements, and during interviews – how you responded in real time to stimuli, what skills you gained, how it made you sharper and stronger as a problem solver, and how you developed resiliency. 2020 was a nightmare of a year, but you emerged, more powerful, agile, and ready to take on challenges for your employer. Let’s make sure they know that!
