The collapse of markets, shopping malls, and conventional business models amid the global pandemic offers to rethink the business strategies.
During this pandemic, nearly all the sectors i.e. education, real estate, etc. have suffered a great deal due to the lockdown. Traditionally, employees used to go to offices for work, students used to go to the universities, the buyers used to go to shopping centers or local markets to buy the products but now new systems have been set up.
Offices are empty as the employees are working from homes, the students are taking online classes, meetings are being held online and online shopping has become a norm. The adaption of these new systems has evolved businesses, education, and industries.
If we take the simple example of shopping, we see that people have changed their buying styles. They are shifting towards buying products online and small businesses want to sell their products online rather than in physical stores.
Soon, all the businesses will be transferred to the internet which means they are becoming location independent. The usual job industry is not going to be there. Companies are more likely to focus more on hiring freelancers to outsource their tasks and get things done.
The educational institutes have launched online courses that are going to be utilized for many years. The demands for techies and engineers are going to peak as technology has erupted in all sectors from healthcare to tourism all over the world.
This trend is also affecting the mindset of people rather it is related to investments, technology, or job titles.
Now people are getting less conscious of job titles and focusing more on their skills and talents. As people are going to spend more time on the internet, there is a rise in content creation, marketing, social media marketing, online conferencing, social media management, application and website development, etc.
These skills are also counted in the top 10 In-demand skills of 2020. There is also an increased demand for creation on e-commerce websites. Therefore, It is very useful to develop any of these skills.
