People love to talk about how to get qualified in a post COVID19 world, but the truth of it is that we are still in the thick of the pandemic and maybe for some time. COVID19 may have changed the way we work and apply for jobs, but it hasn’t changed the need to be a qualified, skilled and experienced worker. Companies are looking for workers who can demonstrate adaptability, communication and emotional intelligence, creativity and problem-solving, and tech-savviness and apply them in their roles.
Businesses may have shifted their workforce to a remote work environment, but they are adapting to and finding ways to monitor and review performance. Now, more than ever, the importance of being qualified and being able to hit the floor running in a role matters.
