The new business environment brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has changed just about everything. The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates that

“1.25 billion workers, representing almost 38% of the global workforce, are employed in sectors that are now facing a severe decline in output or a high risk of workforce displacement.”

However, no matter what level your career is at, facing challenges amid the COVID-19 crisis doesn’t mean your career is dead in the water. Yes, old paths are closing, but new ones are opening. To navigate the new realities of the labor market, a structured approach is needed to tackle the long-term impact of this crisis.

The CCPAA-ON invites Bruce Simon, Vice President, Recruitment and Placement from Robert Half, to talk about managing through change during COVID-19 and in a post-pandemic era.

This presentation will show you strategies for starting or advancing your career, new pathways to take, and overcoming the obstacles in your way:

  • How are my industry and my job affected by COVID-19?
  • How can I address the skill gaps I have to meet the realities and requirements of a post-COVID-19 job market?
  • How do I find and successfully acquire emerging job opportunities?
  • How do I stay focused and energized during this period?
