COVID-19 has resulted in millions of Americans filing for unemployment, thousands of businesses closing, and millions of other employees hanging in career limbo wondering if or when their job will be eliminated. What can we do?
If you are blessed to still be gainfully employed at this stage of this global health pandemic, don’t rely on your past performance. The traditional career ladder no longer exists. Results matter. Transferable skills are essential to survival in the current workplace. You will also need to stand out from the crowd. Assess your assets, uplevel your skills, reconnect your connections, and document your achievements so that you are ready to leverage new opportunities that may be presented to you.
Have you been integral in helping your employer pivot and thrive during COVID-19?
Now is the time to compile the evidence of your contributions – flexibility, innovation, dedication, and elevation. The skills and experience you develop during this difficult time will increase your career options, negotiating power, and earning potential.
