We’ve seen local businesses shutter, companies around the country go on lengthy hiring freezes, and a comprehensive transition to remote work for tech-savvy companies. It’s a lot to take into account, especially if you’re still floating around the job market; mass layoffs and furloughs have plagued workers around the country, leaving countless people in the lurch and scrambling to collect unemployment.
