Quarantine is a great excuse to send a quick note to your old connects and ask them how they are doing. Share something personal about yourself, are you quarantining with family out of state? do you love it? Hate it? End it with something you & the contact shared together. Did they take you out to lunch at a great spot? Maybe say you miss the food there, Idk. The possibilities are endless. Try to genuinely get to know the person and keep job referrals off your mind for 2 secs. Not trying to be mean but people can smell desperation. Good luck!

That’s my goal- I want to get to know then and build a good relationship w them first and foremost. I will definitely keep your points in mind, thanks for the tips!

ask them about what their job. Has COVID changed anything? What are you seeing in the markets? Where do they think we’ll go from here? etc. It’s a good way to talk about the role you’re interested in and show that you’re interested without flat-out asking if they’re hiring.

That’s what I’ve been doing-and have been getting great responses. I’ll probably incorporate some questions in regards to themselves as people too so like top post said so it’ll be easier to follow up and also be able to develop a good relationship in general

Since Covid started, I've used it as an excuse to avoid office parties and social functions even after restrictions started easing. Part of it was to avoid passing covid to at-risk family members, but admittedly my social anxiety played a role too. What a relief to give those things a miss! An office gathering is coming up that takes place during work hours and I want to skip it, but I'm worried that this will be problematic because it's technically during paid time. Should I bite the bullet?

Hi, Everyone I come from a law enforcement background with a bachelors degree in Criminology and a minor in Law. However, I am super passionate about the world of finance and I am actively seeking to get a job in this industry. Anybody mind sharing some companies that are actively hiring and that are willing to take me without a degree in finance? I already applied to some of the popular one for entry level jobs, but I haven’t had any luck yet. Any help is greatly appreciated.
