Coronavirus Crisis: How It Can Impact Your Career And What To Do

​The world is witnessing an ongoing economic and health crisis that is and will continue to negatively impact many industries: potentially sharp reductions in employment and hours worked, and, in some cases, unprecedented increases in retrenchment and lay-offs. While it is natural to be nervous about the impacts on your career, you can choose to take actions to take back control of your career.

On 22nd April, our CEO and Founder Sabrina Ho discusses how you can prepare for the likely impacts on different industries and how you can better future-proof your career to counter these effects together with General Assembly.

We'll review 3 steps that can help you craft an effective short, medium and long-term career strategy:

  • Short term: Resilience - The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

  • Mid Term: In a crisis, there is opportunity.

  • Long Term: Prepare for the future of work: retrain, reskill, relearn
