If you were laid off due to COVID-19 or another unforeseen circumstance, don’t be idle during your job search.  There are several things you can do to help keep your skills fresh, make yourself more marketable, and stay up to date with the latest technologies.

One thing you can do is pursue certifications such as cloud certifications and other certifications in your field.  You can also work on your own side projects or build your own home lab to practice. Don’t forget to add those projects to your resume to highlight those newly learned skills. Potential hiring managers will appreciate your work ethic, commitment to your craft, and ability to learn when you are seeking new opportunities. The time is NOW to build up your skillset.
