COVID-19 is throwing up new job opportunities, but new graduates will have to be patient, notes Ven Sreenivasan of the Straits Times:
Human resources consultant Bernard Marr highlights eight skills to survive the job market in the post-Covid world. These are tech savviness; adaptability and flexibility; creativity and innovation; data literacy; critical thinking; digital and coding skills; leadership; and lifelong learning.
Being young and with no major financial commitments, many fresh graduates should be versatile enough to meet the challenges of the new normal in the workplace. The key driving philosophy must be “adopt, adapt and acquire new skills.”
