You might think life is not doing you justice when COVID-19 hits this hard. However, we want to remind you that your contributions to Hong Kong’s economy are just indescribably amazing. See this critical change as an opportunity for you to step out of your comfort zone. After all, tomorrow is another day, and every ending is a beginning.
With the escalating number of laid-offs, career advice from the media, the internet and all of your caring friends are overflowing and somehow, emotionally draining. Rushing into a decision is the last thing you should do right now. What’s a better time to re-evaluate and leverage your core strengths?
Think genuinely about what is the ideal benchmark for your next chapter in career development. Always bear in mind that you should “Never Settle for Less” and downplay yourself.
Before stepping onto a brand new career path, what matters more than understanding the state of the particular market? From required skill sets to job responsibilities and career prospects, some information is, by nature, more valuable than the others.
Xccelerate gets first-hand job market information by communicating with hiring managers and stakeholders directly. We utilize the insights to create career-related content and events for our audiences. Make sure you stay tuned to our website and social media channels.
You don’t know what you don’t know! People nowadays don’t work for money anymore. It’s about designing a future they love, and following a lifestyle that they desire. That’s why you should always chase after something better than what you had.
Instead of settling your future with the limited choices you are aware of, why don’t you expand on your choices with some professional guidance? Schedule a complimentary 1-1 career consultation with us. Our in-house talent solution team will provide customized career advice based on your academic background, working experience, strengths and weaknesses, expectations, and career preferences.
After knowing your career direction, let’s make your first big step. Conduct a skill gap analysis to identify the skills required to meet your career goals. Take this moment to equip and better yourself with those skills.
