Reinventing Careers and Skills for a COVID-19 World (Part 2)– December 2020

Unexpected events or shocks disrupt our habitual routines, jolt us out of our comfort zones, and lead us to ask big questions about what matters and what is worth doing. It’s no wonder that during the current pandemic, many people are rethinking their careers.

This global crisis has led to lasting effects to the workplace with a recovering labor market, more remote work, restructuring of companies leading to redundancies that no longer affect the underperformers. It has become imperative for us to balance the pressing need to ensure basic survival – of our families and firms – with the growing urge to reinvent careers and stay relevant post the crisis.

LSF Global recently conducted a webinar on Reinventing Careers & Skills for a Covid-19 World: Part2 attended by Industry experts, consultants and leadership coaches. Here are the main points shared by these experts on the topic.

We need to have the right mindset to “learn to unlearn” and to upskill and reskill ourselves in order to adapt to the new technological challenges of working virtually and upgrading our knowledge. Various online learning platforms like LMS by LSF Global, Coursera and Udemy provide industry -based online courses.

With more in-person interviews being held online, a new set of interview guidelines have come into place. One must prepare to stand out in such interviews not just by being able to present and articulate one’s achievements and skills but also being adept in the technical challenges one might have while facing such online interviews.

“Purpose networking” with the intention of staying regularly engaged with your contacts, not only strengthens your relationship with them but also help find opportunities. For this, one must be actively engaged through blogs and comments in Social Media platforms and attend webinars and conferences held online.

The convergence of algorithmic advances, data proliferation and tremendous increase in computing power and storage has propelled AI across industries. Technical literacy allows talent at all levels to adapt to changing nature of work.

LMS by LSF Global offers relevant courses online that help talents from Banking and Financial institution in upgrading their tech knowledge.

The webinar was followed up with a panel discussion on Resilient Leadership and how to meet the crisis at hand and find opportunities amidst difficult constraints.
It was later concluded with a live Q& A session wherein queries regarding career growth and preparing for possible redundancies were from taken up by Winnie Tam, Career Coach and Aalok Gupta, CEO Coach.
