Keep an Eye Out for Job Openings

I got a great email from my local grocery store Safeway this week that said, “We’re hiring! Come down to see us and get a job. But, given the current situation, let’s just not shake hands.” I like their style. So keep an eye on your usual emails from grocers and stores to see if they’ve added on a message that they’re looking for team members!

Some regions like New Jersey and Los Angeles are setting up websites to help local job seekers — Google search your city with phrase like “hiring during coronavirus” to see if your area has done the same.
