Free webinars scheduled to help displaced employees

Newland Associates offers expertise for those seeking employment after COVID-19

Online PR News – 10-April-2020 – Orlando, FL – Before COVID-19, the unemployment rate sat at a steady 3.6 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the U.S., job seekers would quit and land another job before even updating their resumes.
That changed in what seems like an instant. Now, employees who have been let go might be unsure if their job will be available when they can return. Some may need retraining, while others might need to pursue an entirely new field.
Newland Associates, a human resource consulting firm in Lake Mary, is here to help.
“The world is on pause, but people who want to re-enter the workforce need to act now,” said Robert Newland, CEO of Newland Associates. “They need to not only learn how to cope with their current situation, but also be building skills that will help them in the future.”
To help, Newland Associates is offering free online webinars to provide resources to those seeking their next job.
With an everchanging economy and job market, Newland said, the U.S. could expect an unemployment rate of more than 10 percent. According to experts, more than 7,000,000 jobs were lost in March alone.
