    Cancer + Careers

    People around the country are feeling the impact of COVID-19 on their careers. This may mean lay-offs for some and new working conditions for others. For those living with cancer, going back to the workplace or looking for a new job can be scarier than ever before. Many fear job security or a lack of opportunities, but AYAs living with cancer also fear the health risk of going back to the workplace or being able to find a safe job. As a vulnerable population, those living with cancer may experience these crisis-caused challenges and need the help of some career resources.

    Cancer + Careers Resources

    Cancer + Careers helps those living with cancer become empowered in the workplace via online, print, and in-person resources. From the point of diagnosis, Cancer + Careers can help you navigate the legal and financial implications of cancer treatment. They even provide resources for helping coworkers become a support system.

    Cancer + Careers offers resources specific to the COVID-19 crisis such as workshops, webinars and available financial resources. If you’re searching for a new position, look into their tips on interviewing and use their resume review service. While we’re still in quarantine, take some time to view their videos on balancing work and cancer or read some of their free publications on working with cancer.

    Let’s keep our communities safe and continue to follow our local and state guidelines. For those in good health and returning to work, please be mindful of the challenges that AYAs may be facing due to this pandemic and remember to wash hands regularly and social distance to protect one another. Please read the CDC’s guidance for safe practices when returning to the workforce.
