Dear Young People–Generation Covid
Dear Young People
Please be aware that this period won’t define your 40 year career, it will be one of a few lows, of mostly highs. Future employers will understand you have been impacted by COVID and you have a gap in your CV. They will ask what you did during that time. You’ll say that you applied for many jobs and kept getting rejected, but it built resilience. You started to keep a diary. You were outside your comfort zone. You networked. You were curious. You reached out for help and you gave plenty of help to friends, family and connections.
All traits and habits which build emotional intelligence, the most in demand skill required for the future. There are unknowns, but the opportunities will come back.
