Job Tips


People who are recovering from COVID-19 no longer need to remain isolated for five days after symptoms end, according to new guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. March 2, 2024.

Those sick with COVID-19 should stay at home and away from others until at least 24 hours after symptoms get better and they don't have a fever, without medication, according to updated guidance from the CDC.

"Today's announcement reflects the progress we have made in protecting against severe illness from COVID-19," CDC Director Dr. Mandy Cohen said in a statement. "However, we still must use the commonsense solutions we know work to protect ourselves and others from serious illness from respiratory viruses -- this includes vaccination, treatment, and staying home when we get sick."

The CDC said during those five days after you are feeling better and without a fever you should still wear a well-fitting mask, keep distance from others, get tested and use enhanced hygiene practices.

It was also noted that the guidelines were intended for community settings, not health care setting, like hospitals or nursing homes, where the same five-day isolation guidance remains.

Go on many interviews in your industry to learn how to ace a job interview. Interviewing is a skill. Focus on looking the interviewer in the eye or the tip of their nose. Remember that first impressions are everlasting. Think about what skills need to be improved on your end.

Are you dressing to impress? Are you wearing appropriate jewelry? One pair of earrings are appropriate for interviews and work. If your job permits you to wear a nose ring, one small post is appropriate. Hand rings should be limited to one ring per hand. Refer to employee handbook for dress code specific to your company.

Wear appropriate hair style, have your hair a naturally occurring hair color, such as blond, brunette, brown, red (ginger), gray, or black. Remember to speak in complete sentences and avoid slang. Remember to speak instead of using hand and/or body gestures. Pay attention to your body language (no folded arms, hand on forehead etc.). Practice answering interview questions with friends or family or even in the mirror.
