Since the pandemic started I have been focused on things within my control. That advice has been one of the most valuable I received in my career. When I listed the things I can control there are many, like dozens of things and so I set about doing those when I feel helpless or scared or worried to the point of freezing.
One of things I can control is sharing open roles and connecting great candidates to new opportunities. I started using the hashtag #hiringishappening when I share open roles on Linkedin. I don't always know the people who are posting the roles but sharing them opens up the possibility that someone in my network will see it and either be right for it or pass it along to someone else.
When you see an open job will you pass it along too? 5 seconds, #hiringishappening tag and you're done.
