While the global economy has been massively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have adapted to a new normality, with many re-launching their hiring campaign in the last few weeks or months. To make the most of this opportunity and secure the most sought-after jobs, it’s crucial that the public knows of the options available to them, allowing them to identify skill gaps and ensure a successful career transition.
“People often have doubts about their career choices and decisions at various stages of their journey,” said Aparna Mahesh, CMO of Great Learning. “Today, COVID has made people across industries want to understand much more about future-proof career options. Through this initiative, we are making efforts to assist people in making the right choices for the new normal world that can help in accelerating their career growth. Through the knowledge and industry experience of our key counsellors, if we would be able to power individuals by providing them the right direction, we would be contributing in a small way to their new beginnings.”
