The epidemic Coronavirus (COVID-19) has created global turbulence and the virus effect has made the whole world stand on one foot. Most of the countries have been widely affected by this notorious virus which originated from China.
Big economies like the USA, China, Italy, the UK, India, France, Canada, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Australia, etc. have been hit by COVID-19. These countries are also the biggest job providers for global professionals.
We have to keep in mind this is a crisis period and the job market denials will be remaining for a short time only. COVID-19 pandemic cannot affect or kill jobs for fresher and certified personnel in the long term. Once the world overcomes this crisis, I am sure the global leaders will strategically plan to rotate the global economy at a better place than it used to be.
The worst-hit in the job industry for the “Coronavirus” breakthrough is the Hospitality, Travel & Tourism and airline sector. Other industries like manufacturing had reduced their pace of operation but are not fully closed. There is will be some temporary lay-offs, but it will just for some weeks.
The educated or certified personnel should not allow themselves to enter the path of depression due to scarcity of jobs, as I again say it will be just for a shorter time. Once everything gets settled and all the itineraries are on track qualified students can see the demand of their certification through their own eyes. What do they need to do for now? Is to remain patient and read articles, keep themselves motivated by reading books, gathering knowledge of their industry and track the way things are going around.
Being educated and certified personnel you have to keep your nerves stronger in the turbulent time and this helps you out gradually in your future when you get promoted in a leadership role. I would suggest following the wise Swedish proverb “Is Imagen” which in English stands “ice in the belly”. The moral of the story is “your ability to keep yourself cool in a critical situation.”
Please recognize that things might look worst, but government assistance is also coming on an everyday basis. The business leaders are still recalling that the 2008 recession was far more widely hit to the economy than COVID-19. During the 2008 government came up as savior in the aftermath crisis and it will also happen this time.
A chunk of the resistance was due to public resentment towards bailing out financial institutions that had caused the crisis. The public is more likely to be supportive of economic stimulus packages in the current case where the downturn is hard to blame on one particular industry. And economic aid might also be targeted towards companies that can prevent layoffs.
Once the world comes out this Corona crisis and the job market re-opens, the first people to get hired will the educated certified personnel who are fresher or we can say entry-level jobs will open up. The wise reason behind this syndrome is that the organization has been hit by the financial crisis, so highly experienced and heavily paid peoples won’t to a choice.
I will suggest the certified freshers join online courses and much more advanced training at this time while sitting in a home in lockdown situations and walking through depression. Most of the courses which are available online now are coming up with huge discounts from 10%-70%. The situation will change and time will go away and gathering more education at this moment is the best choice.
Every professional in today’s world has to go through crisis seasons, be it Corona or recession or Tsunami. I will say it is a great learning period for the fresher to keep themselves strong and confident to face the future, and which is always golden. The world has experienced the worst situations than today and gradually everything was overcome. We need to keep ourselves healthy, fit both physically and mentally and accept the challenges keep our chin up, instead of getting demoralized at home.
I will moreover suggest youngsters and certified peoples start part-time jobs, freelancing jobs and gather experiences before you get hired for permanent jobs. This can be a lifetime experiencing for your career. There are plenty of part-time and freelancing jobs as work from home and the earnings are also getting better than the previous day. So, get in touch with the peoples in virtual society and place yourself to adapt to the situation and start working from today.
