Youth Day Special:  #StagnationMustFall – Practical lessons to future-proof your career during COVID-19 and beyond

About the masterclass:

The spread of COVID-19 has forced governments across the globe to balance economic activity with the preservation of lives.  South Africa announced a national lockdown on 26 March 2020 to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This seems to have averted what would have otherwise been a public-health catastrophe, but the economic toll is expected to be significant and long-drawn.  It is generally agreed that this economic fall-out will have a negative impact on careers across the world.

The JBS invites you for an exclusive Masterclass on how to safeguard your career during turbulent times.  We will unpack practical ways that professionals and workers can implement today to take advantage of career growth in the midst of a crisis.  The Masterclass will seek to answer burning questions such as:

  • What does employability look like in a post-COVID-19 world?
  • Is your career at risk?
  • What can you do to regain career growth in a post-COVID-19 world?
  • What skills should you learn today to prepare yourself for career growth beyond the current crisis?
  • Is changing your career an option and where should you start?
  • How can you crisis-proof your career for the future?
