The industry witnessed massive layoffs by various organizations during the lockdown; however, having found a way to work around the new normal and businesses gradually going back on track, these organizations have started hiring again. To make the most of this opportunity and land better jobs, it is imperative for people to know the options they have available, identify a skill gap if any to ensure a successful career transition.
Aparna Mahesh, chief marketing officer, Great Learning said “People often have doubts about their career choices and decisions at various stages of their journey. 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.”
