  1. Dear Community! I hope you enjoy this full-feature on how to navigate the murky waters of the coronavirus and the affects it's having on your job search and career. As always, I hope you enjoy my take on this. Please make sure to SUB to the channel so you get these weekly videos and can join me for Live Office Hours Thursdays. This Thursday, however, I have a special event you can attend for FREE on how to catapult your career. Something we all need to do to upskill ourselves, especially during these uncertain times! You can check that out here: https://www.milewalkacademy.com/andrew-lacivita-catapult-your-career. Hope you attend!

  2. You inspire alot bro. I wish my channeel can groww as big as yours one day. Stay safe from corona.
    Good luck

  3. Its going to fuck your job search efforts in every orifice…and you wont have a career….and you will probably die from the virus anyway…..other than that, its all good – so keep positive!!

  4. I hope you and the family are doing well Andy! Wishing you all the best during these rough times. I am trying to make the best of it, the wife is home (for now) we are doing a very thorough house cleaning, I am learning new skills by doing some courses on udemy online and studying for my A+ certification and doing a beef up of my desktop PC in case I land a work from home job.
    Love you brother! Stay safe!

  5. Thank you so much, Andrew. Voices like yours are so important always, but even more so right now. I really appreciate all that you have done and continue to do for those who you have served. Thank you.

  6. Andy, I cannot thank you enough for how you have transformed my approach to 'the hunt.' In the midst of all this, may I non-sequitur over to a very specific question regarding where I am in a particular search? I'm down the line, online!, with an institution. I know the exact salary of the person who was previously in this position, because the institution's taxes are published as a 990. They have started to ask end game questions like when can you start and salary expectations. Do I give them a number even here? ie, what the salary is established as plus COLA, for example? Do I talk specific numbers even here? Or hold the line and let them come forward with the number and then use that information if the offer is below it?

  7. To your point, at 34:20 I had two in-person interviews (one screen; one a two-person panel with hiring manager and his direct-line supervisor – both C-Suite leadership) for a Corporate position. My third interview was scheduled in-person, but was changed to on-line/video. My next steps… I have been awaiting to hear back from the company in consideration of the company adjusting to their remotes/limited work schedules.

  8. The front page message of your journal speaks directly to me. Having been laid off last year in October, I've had to go through several bouts of depressive and suicidal thoughts, applied for over 2000 jobs, had more than 50 interviews, couldn't land a job then Corona happened. I even had a job offer rescinded also because of same corona, and now I'm here thinking, oh things just got shitty. I'm very hopeful though, much more than I was 4 months ago, and I know there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel, and the past six months have been indeed a lesson in humility.
    Thanks for the great videos and stay healthy 👍🏾

  9. Andrew thank you so much for your expertise. I just sent a LinkedIn connection to your LinkedIn. Before I found your content I use to try and read "what Color is Your Parachute" books before a upcoming interview and watch the interview scene from The Pursuit Of Happyness over and over again. I had a Zoom panel interview yesterday and got another one coming up on Thursday, the later being the job I'm really praying for.
    ????? My question is how do you handle Zoom interruptions gracefully????? The interviewers kept saying it was their internet connection, but as I kept my smile on I still felt a little discouraged while I was explaining my stories I prepared mid way screen freezing. Any tips?
    P.S. I think you wrote the dialogue for the interview scene it has a lot of your greatness in there, its on youtube: The Pursuit Of Happyness – Job Interview
    Thank you so much!

  10. i'm praying to everyone that is in my shoes. i'm looking for a jobs too. no one wanting to give me an interview. my thought is with you guys going thru the same. hope things will get better for us all. 🙂

  11. Why are some businesses open while nationally.locally the mandate is vastly to contain the Covid 19 virus spread. ..

  12. Let go from a seasonal position for missing to many days ..i had a flu virus i believe was the virus flu going on now..As an adult having been thru enough 'bugs' .,this was different by far…..was seen twice by same Dr…never tested, confirmed flu and advised to stay home..until no fever..not contagious ..check
    Days later…much worse. .go back ..given antibiotic and the Required note from Dr to return to seasonal work. ..
    Check..
    I welcome remote work…I greatly appreciate your time and videos…what lighting and time of day are you taping!!

  13. This came at the perfect time for me. I'm a medical biller for a specialist office, and this pandemic really showed me what I need in a company, flexibility in the face of emergency. The boss is trying to get a bunch of business and if actually ENCOURAGING sick individuals to come in. We have a massage therapist still working despite local regulations in place because the boss is using the blanket description of healthcare to remain open.

    I was one of those roped in because I wasn't looking outside my area. I look forward to expanding my search finally!

  14. Belgium here… Uncle Andy, hehehehe …. I'm a contract agent with the EU in Brussels, in between contracts with everything on hold so I hope I get some ideas from you now. 🙂👍
