And in an instant, everything changed.
What is your place in the new domestic economy?
Being in Aotearoa New Zealand, we've got some great advantages over most of the rest of the world, in terms of our domestic economy. Much of the country has gotten back to work. That is, unless you are part of the tourism, hospitality, entertainment, sport and arts industries. Those have really taken a hit because of global travel restrictions. Maybe your employer had to make cuts, and you find yourself needing to do a monumental and entirely unforeseen career pivot.
So now what?
Yeah, not that.
Now you need to figure out how you can combine what you already know with what you love to do, to make your breadth of experience and passions pay your way forward. Fast. How do you re-combine your talents and skills in new directions to stay relevant and, most of all, gainfully employed in our rapidly shifting economy?
Chances are that you've never before needed urgent access to expert career assessment and re-evaluation skills so you can make the very best of the unexpected circumstances you find yourself in.
You may rightly have no clue about where or how to start so you can make the best of all this and move purposefully into your newly unfolding future.
How do you repurpose yourself to best fit into this new, primarily New Zealand-centric economy? Do you make a permanent change, or do something in the short to medium term until the worst is over and our borders re-open? Is this a do-over, a make-do, or a complete make-over?
Do you know?
So many choices...
