We can witness many companies pretty scared right now. Many employees are starting to work from home. The most immediate impact job seekers can start seeing is that they're will be cutting all in-person interviewing so a lot of interviewing will start happening virtually. This is important for job seekers to note so that you can start preparing yourself, you need to know how to do virtual interviews, you need to know video interviewing techniques.

We are also going to see pause on hiring potentially successful candidates and the final stages of hiring will really slow down and that's because they are eventually going to want to meet you in person and until this is all cleared up that's going to hold hiring managers or HR personnel back from hiring.

Lastly and probably the most scariest thing is that for a lot of companies that were maybe not so strong in their financials this will be the tipping point. Coronavirus will be the need for them to restructure, and potentially
have retrenchments.

South Africa will have to put together some pretty big strategies in order for everyone to get around and eventually recover from the coronavirus.

Some of us may even find ourselves being quarantined or at home and it can be a scary time. If you have the right information and the right resources and the right coaching and the right support you can get through times like this and eventually you'll be able to turn around knowing how to manage yourself through this process.
