What To Do Before You Upskill
Are you a â€ślife-long-learner?â€ť
If you havenâ€™t adopted an “upskilling” behavior, now would be a good time to start. A full half of the global workforce will require â€śreskillingâ€ť by 2025, according to one jobs report. In just a few short years, many of us will need to learn new skills.
Why? Because as the worldâ€™s industries change, as technologies change, the skills required of the worldâ€™s workforce change right along with them. Work as a social media strategist didnâ€™t exist when I was in school â€“ imagine what could exist for the next generation.
The world is demanding workers with new and different skillsets. So, get ready to hear more about â€śupskilling,â€ť â€śreskillingâ€ť and even â€śnew-skilling.â€ť These are already more than business buzzwords, theyâ€™ve become a highly sought-after employee benefit.
