The Covid-19 pandemic has rendered many people jobless across the globe. Due to the negative impact, the pandemic has inflicted on the global economy, many businesses have been shut down leading to loss of jobs.
Lossing a job at this time can be stressful and people who are affected by this economic downturn should not blame themselves for losing their job, rather they should remain focus and begin strategizing for post-COVID-19.
What those that lose their job due to COVID-19 should be doing right now is upgrading their employability skills now that they have the time to do so. Upgrade yourself with skills that may increase your chances of getting another job.
Employers are looking for employees with digital skills, soft skills, and work experience. Upgrade your basic computer knowledge skills, learn how to navigate in a work environment, do volunteer jobs, and apprenticeship to gain more work experience.
Note that white-collar jobs are not the final solution to unemployment, blue-collar jobs are the highest employer of labor. See whether you can transition in that path.
IT, business development, graphic design, digital analytics are fields you should consider looking into because they are in high demand at this time. So don't just sit and blame yourself for losing a job when you should be upgrading your skills against post-COVID-19.
