Where to Look for Job Opportunities and Resources

Unfortunately, the situation surrounding COVID-19 is only going to get worse before it gets better. The number of corona virus cases are only increasing, which means businesses are shutting down and those that are open are cutting down on employees. Over 6.65 million people in just the last month have filed for unemployment, and you might have been one of them.
