How do I future proof my career?
This question is often asked by members of our early talent community when they apply for internships, traineeships or roles within the ANZ Graduate program and when they think longer term about their careers.
As we move into our post pandemic careers, the skills we have developed over the past 12 months can help set us up for success for years to come.
Here I outline five key areas of focus along with some tips, which may be helpful to develop our careers.
Relationship building and networking
If we have learnt anything from the COVID-19 lockdown, it is how important relationships are; the importance of connecting. When we work remotely, we miss opportunities to learn by osmosis.
As we transition back into workplaces, we are reminded of the value of incidental conversations that can happen over the desk or when we pass each other in the kitchen. The importance of relationships and connection will continue to be important.
