Episode 6 of Out Of Office: Unusual Circumstances is available now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify.
The past few months have been tough for everyone, but when it comes to the job market, young people around the world might just be struggling the most. A recent report confirmed that under-25s have been hardest hit by the economic fallout and a third of young people have lost their jobs.
But that’s not to say all hope is lost. Many hiring experts are suggesting that COVID-19 has presented us all with the opportunity to pause and reflect; think about our true passions and reassess our career paths. Many of us will be looking for new roles, potentially thinking about starting our own business or even doing a complete career U-turn and starting over.
Whatever you’re thinking, we’re here to help. That’s why we’re welcoming career insider Pip Jamieson, Founder of The Dots, a creative networking platform in the UK and voted a Top 100 Entrepreneur by The Sunday Times.
But first, we're welcoming Marley Hughes, Relationship Manager from LinkedIn based in Toronto.
Together they will be sharing their tried-and-tested advice for starting your own business, their thoughts on the future of work and why diversity and inclusion are more important than ever, plus smart tips on how to stand out during this difficult time.
Out of Office: Unusual Circumstances is of course about travel, but it's also about community, solidarity, and supporting mental health. Travel is just the thread that binds us. Even now, in these tough times, our incredible community are reaching out beyond their borders, dreaming, reminiscing, and giving each other hope. Out of Office seeks to share these incredible stories from around the world in unique and engaging ways.
