As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, businesses have acted quickly, requiring employees to work from home to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus. While we don’t yet know the full impact of COVID-19, companies not only face the sudden need to effectively manage business-wide remote working arrangements, many have also found themselves in the positions where they need to implement employee pay cuts, or furlough and lay off staff to minimise operational costs.
Whether your job has been affected, this crisis presents a good opportunity to take a hard look at yourself – your strengths, skills passion and goals – and in turn, revisit your career journey. Where did you come from, where are you now, and where should you head to next?
Experts at Robert Walters and our friends at just add water, have devised a guide for anyone to rediscover their career and upskill themselves. We encourage everyone to make full use of the pockets of time available during this period of social distancing to recharge themselves, refresh their career plans, and hone their craft for a better tomorrow. Even as we are forced to adapt to a new way of living and working, we can always take back control of our lives and careers by rediscovering and upskilling ourselves.
