How you can future-proof your career.

Have you future-proofed your career with essential skills to survive and thrive in the ever-changing work environment? What are you doing about that?

What skills have you been developing as you stay at home or learn/work from home?

Do you sometimes feel like choosing a new domain where you’re not experienced and trying it out?

Business needs are constantly changing just like technological advances and work structures. Therefore, it is important to develop some essential skill sets important for the future.

In order to achieve this, it is important to continually learn and adapt to this rapidly shifting economic landscape.

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills (https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED519462.pdf) highlights some essential skills necessary for a modern professional and they include:

  • Learning skills—how we process information and connect the dots between different subjects
  • Literacy skills—how we use information technology to tell stories and inspire people
  • Life skills—how we use initiative, create a vision for our career and develop our personal brand.

As times change, it’s important to understand that; employers not only want to know what we have achieved in the past, but what we are capable of achieving in the future.
