About This Event
Let’s face facts, we don’t live in the 20th century anymore where individuals could stay in the same job for 40 years. The lifecycle of jobs can be very short. There is a lot of vulnerability in the job market. How can we upgrade our skills and professional capital to make it flexible and adaptable to the change in the nature of jobs in the 21st century? Let’s prepare ourselves to find other jobs without getting hurt or having emotional damage from the loss of jobs.
