Today, when we walk the streets of New York City, we see, first-hand, the challenges faced by job-candidates and employers resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite the shock to the hiring ecosystem in certain industries, which is leaving many employers on pause and candidates out-of-work, we’re seeing a surge in demand for Food Delivery, Healthcare, and Cleaning Services.
Attention Job Candidates!
NYC is Hiring.
The city needs people who are willing to work in these industries to keep up with the demand. For people with prior experience in these industries, we ask that you check out the opportunities available on Merlin. If your job was affected by the current economic situation, this is a moment-in-time to consider switching industries.

Finally, employers and candidates can directly chat with each other and arrange interviews.
The result? A magical job-search & hiring experience that is fully digital.
Please note that in normal times, it takes only a couple of days to find a job or hire on Merlin. It may take a little longer in the current environment, but we hope that by providing our platform for free during this time, we can be a source of value for our NY community.
