TREND TALK BY GRADUAN: OPPORTUNITIES & CHALLENGES IN INTERNSHIP AND JOB SEEKING POST COVID-19

by GRADUAN

During the pandemic, millions of individuals were furloughed or lost their jobs, while others easily transitioned to working from home as businesses collapsed. Hence, TVEX 4.0 has brought to you Ms. Amalina from GRADUAN to chew over the topics of career demands and opportunities post-pandemic. 

Ms. Amalina started the webinar by discussing how job searchers are adjusting to the new normal, which she describes as the most significant transformation in the global economy since businesses began to lose money.  She stated that recent grads have a better chance of landing a job because employers will always be willing to hire them. Therefore, internship candidates and graduates must maintain a positive attitude, particularly throughout the job-search process. Ms. Amalina then leads us through the ways on how to stand out in the industry, including creating a video résumé and making our LinkedIn profiles noticeable. She highlighted that having great leadership qualities, creativity, and effective communication skills are all virtues that recruiters look for in recent graduates!
