COVID-19 has taken all of us off guard. The shock of the coronavirus pandemic has made planning for the future extremely difficult because of all the uncertainties. This is particularly true especially for major decisions like a career move.
When the economy and job market are stable, it is easy to explore and assume that the grass is greener on the other side. But with the pandemic, you will think that still having a job is a blessing as you see the unemployment rate rising and several companies closing. However, even in this situation, staying put may not be necessarily the best possible strategy. If you work in a sector that has been badly impacted and may take some time to recover, this is a good time to think of making a change. Many companies are hiring right now, so there are good opportunities out there.
