Hello. This discussion is about covid-19 and a career action plan.
So. as you are aware covid-19 has negatively impact this world and one of the saddest thing is people losing jobs and more importantly people feeling very insecure on their job this leads to lots of frustration which is not good; there is kind of a big negative sentiment going around in the industry so what I plan to do is quickly tell you what is that you can do the best at this tough times and how you can come out of this in style.
So let’s get it started so the first question which.
Comes to everyone’s mind is do I need to worry?
If you just switch on any channel people talk about the number of deaths.
There will be people fighting with each other that are a lot of political fights.
There are a set of people who are discussing about the from where the virus came from?.
So if you see these, none of this is going to.
Best, what you should do is
Stay together because if you are divided someone is going to get benefited out of it.
Which is the point number 1.
2 You need to think of yourself and how you are going to survive after the covid-19 situation so you have to be prepared for that are the two things which you should.
Focus on. So Do I need to worry? the answer is going to don’t take it so easy..
But, at the same time this is not the time you have to panic and be at your low this is the time you have to be
At your best so with that I’m going to explain exactly what you need to do at this difficult times.
For salaried working professionals with no salary cuts and pink slips I think you should feel blessed.
You should continue to stick onto organization but you should keep one thing in your mind your organization is undergoing a difficult time and they have taken care of their employees you should keep that in your mind and give you a 200% back to the organization just be engaged at your work and that’s all.
For salaried working professionals who got a salary cut
Yes it is bad you are going to take home less salary but keep in mind this is better than losing your job itself and very important thing don’t get frustrated don’t take a hasty decision of fighting with your manager and put down on your papers and try to go to New Organization
The reason why I’m telling if you get into a new organization you will get on to a probation. Just in case if the organization is not doing good then you are first in the chopping block and you will be the first who would be asked to go so my suggestion is you have a job; it’s not that you have lost your job just continue to work and give your hundred percentage to organization I think as an organization you will come out of the situation in a faster way; For Salaried working professionals who have already lost their job.
So we are weeks into this situation and if an organization is asking you to go I think you should not feel bad about it because you should feel happy about this because there’s no fun in working for an organization which doesn’t have a spine. you should not be down at this point of time you should be best at this point of time and what you should do is exactly this.
Take a piece of paper list all the different areas you are good at the second thing what you’re going to do is very very important Post covid-19 which are all the sectors which are going to be a super duper hit and what kind of skills are needed on that sector has to be listed on the right hand side so you know what you’re good at it is on the left hand side and what are the skills needed is on the right hand side match both of them find where is the gap invest your time on…
acquiring those new skills trust me you will be back at job not just that you will be the most wanted person post covid-19 situation I’ll give you a few tips as well post covid-19 situation.
First and foremost thing online business is going to be growing at multiple X scale because people will be hesitant to come out.
Things are not going to be normal as before; more and more online businesses are going to increase for product as well as service. 2. people are going to be more conscious about health so health related products and services will see a hike and 3rd one is related to healthy lifestyle so these are the three things I’m giving directly as a indication. I’m not just throwing at you some numbers these sectors are already showing symptoms of growth so please be on top of this be very focused do what I have said and again I’m telling this is not the time you have to be down this is the time you have to be at your best. Students waiting for internship.
I considered internship as one of the very important chapter in a student’s life. Few students are in your internship virtually it’s all good but still considerable amount of people could not continue their internship to what you should do. again you should not be down at this point of time. you should think for yourself if you are getting into internship you’re going to work for one organzation. now if you don’t have an internship you can work for hundred different organizations reach out to the key decision-makers in your network in LinkedIn ask for projects based on your skill sets what you can do for an organization. Update that in cover letter reach out to as many people in Linkedin and other professional platforms. even if this is going to be for free don’t worry about it. this is all about your experience and getting hands-on. Please feel free to reach out to people when you reach out to people you will get some options definitely you are not going to waste your internship times.
Students waiting to start their career. So this is a very tricky situation I understand that the job market is not good but again as I said before what you should do is what I said for the people who have lost their job. I have listed on the specific sectors. all you should do is invest your time on those additional skill sets to make your portfolio really and look good and moment the job market is reviving you will become an obvious choice in terms of some of the new roles coming up. All the best!
Coming back to the entrepreneur’s in startups I know most startups are in a very very difficult times.
Considering the the negative cash flows it’ll also be a good choice to just hold for some time and get it started so that is your decision you as a business you know better but my suggestion is a little different you need to make your business model ready for Post covid-19 situation what are the business plans you have written till now – the business model. operations model, SWOT analysis probably or Porter’s five forces all are going to get changed post Covid19 situation. So you need to re-visit your business plan and be ready for post covid-19 situation I think this is where you need to invest your time now last one – operators and technicians, the people who execute things at each business I can see people are really demotivated and frustrated.
Please don’t do that there’s no point blaming the politicians or blaming the people around or blaming the system none of this is going to help you with anything. what is going to help you is this I listed on all the different sectors which are going to be a super hit.
All these sectors need us to get the job done for them.
We are not going to have robots doing job post covid-19 situation every business needs us all you need to do is be ready with new skill set and this is the time you need to start telling I can do this rather than sticking on to what you were doing before and try to continue doing it because what you have been doing is not going to be relevant post covid-19 situation so please use this time.
To understand the new skills what you need and learn reach out to people whom you know and talk to them talk to a lot of people and understand what is going to be the future and learn it trust me without you this world cannot move forward it’s just you have to be ready for this I wish you all the very best so that’s it I hope for these input would be helpful for you and thank you so much.
