There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic was a complete shock for everyone. What started as small talk amongst friends and family spiraled into a nationwide pandemic. Offices and schools were closed, remote work and school became the new normal, and staying safe from the virus became the main priority. For recruiters and talent acquisition professionals, their already busy jobs were thrown into unprecedented chaos when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in early March of 2020. While some recruiters had to step into overdrive to hire for already hard-to-fill positions, others were suddenly forced to stop hiring processes altogether. Other recruiters were let go or had their jobs put on pause for weeks or months on end. The majority transitioned from in-office positions to working from home with little-to-no training and learning new technologies while also helping hiring managers understand how to juggle remote interviewing, recruitment, and onboarding.
