2020 hasn’t been a great year so far. What with so many devastating things happening, and we don’t mean the pandemic alone! The #blacklivesmatter movement, the tide of unemployment, stock market crashes, and so many others. Probably the only thing everyone wants now is for this year to end sooner than it’s supposed to somehow!
But jokes apart, the big question currently on everyone’s mind is – what will happen after COVID-19? Will the economy revive? Will there be more jobs than before? There’s no way anyone can know for sure, and thus, the best thing to do is to just keep moving forward.
With that thought in mind, we’ve brought some great tips for you that will help you reinvent your career starting from today. We’re sure you need these as much as you need a face mask!
Keep yourself engaged in multiple things
Nobody understands the situation of the world at the moment. The best way to tackle the future in such a scenario is to create solutions for anything it may throw at you. Start developing yourself in more than one field. Transform the pandemic into a catalyst for your evolution. Shatter your limits and your perspective. Experiment and expand!
Lay your hands on something
If you’re planning on reinventing your career, you simply can’t do it without gaining knowledge, resources, and skills. And that’s not all; you have to get up and build relationships that will help you in your career. Some people use their time to study online courses related to the new field they want to go into. Some people are using their time to think about the next billion ideas. The choice is yours. You can spend your time learning or thinking, but don’t sit down idle. Don’t believe that lockdown is an inhibitor. It might be low-key, but this is the time for you to build yourself physically and intellectually.
Don’t be surprised when you see people with lesser qualifications getting jobs quickly. Let go of the mindset that your skills alone will get you a great job. What if you have the certificate and you don’t know where the opportunity is? That’s why you need people. You need a vast network that will link you to opportunities. Note that not all of them will connect you to opportunities; some will turn out to be great advice-givers.
COVID-19 has brought changes to every sector of the world. Some of these changes are positive, while some are negative; some are temporary, and some may be permanent. No-one knows which change is here to stay. That’s why you must prepare for the storm ahead. Stay safe and build yourself.
