The nature of the pandemic and the economic downturn means fewer people will have access to secure work and a more traditional career path. At times like these, it’s important to remain engaged and optimistic, and to seek opportunities wherever they may be – even in unexpected places.
In this series, we ask friends of Parlour with experience of living and working through previous economic downturns to share their wisdom and advice with those feeling unsure about what to do in the immediate and long-term future.
What value does work in aligned or non-aligned fields bring? What tips can help inform the search for work and relevant experience? In a changing professional landscape, where are the opportunities for reflection and finding new directions? How can we use this time to analyse what’s working in the profession and not? How can we be better?
