Social Distancing is KEY! Do Your Part
*As per citywide mandate, Denver is now on a quarantine and curfew each day at 5 PM for everything but essential services.
Businesses Allowed to operate include: Dispensaries, Mechanical, Banks, Grocery and Liquor Stores, and Restaurants: (Delivery Only).
If you MUST go out, wear an n95 mask and /or gloves. Consider staying 10 feet or more away from the next person, six feet in lines (these will be marked with blue tape). Keep outdoor activities to your familiar neighborhood. Avoid travel except where necessary. (Visiting family, work, etc.)
Move ALL Events Online.
Twitch and Facebook currently seem to be the most popular streaming platforms. Twitch seems to have better bandwidth for Live streaming. Youtube Live is also an option. There are many pay for service online streaming fees. There are events online every day being streamed collecting donations for artists. Make sure each artist is correctly branded in your window, and that their donate links are clearly visible, for help getting set up on a Live Stream, call us!
Use Zoom for free P2P Business chat!
The job market is going to be a bit unstable for awhile. Think, probably worse than the 2008 Recession, but in specific sectors. Avoid jobs with high person to person contact numbers. Consider joining “essential” services such as medical, infrastructure, energy, mechanical (all automotive jobs are currently safe), etc. Jobs in restaurants are being cut roughly in half, but most grocery and big box store outlets are hiring and seriously understaffed currently.
Find jobs on Indeed
Colorado Workforce Center Has Hiring events all the time! These may be digital now, but you can always locate them on their job boards online.
Facebook Jobs is also an excellent local resource for who is hiring.
Be Patient! As many businesses adjust to the new way of doing things, many may be on a hiring freeze. Use this time to generate a portfolio or update your resume!
Our staff at Fam BAM is always happy to give industry resumes a look-see.
