Changing job? You are not alone.
Covid-19 has caused immeasurable impact in all aspects of life, from jobs to education and personal life. Since March of 2020 people have lost jobs and been forced away from in-person learning. This has changed everyone’s life plans to some degree. Many people were welcomed to the world of online learning for the first time and found it to be a great fit for themselves.
The Irish Academy of Public Relations offers online courses and people have found taking courses like this fits their schedules better and allows them to find time for furthering their education or career. According to Sigmar Recruitment more people have changed jobs in the second quarter of this year compared to any quarter in the past 20 years. Although Covid has had a mainly negative impact, it has also opened people’s minds to think about what truly makes them happy. This figure shows many people came to the realisation they needed change in their work lives.
This figure helps us see where there is a positive side to Covid. It gave people more time to think about themselves and their lifestyles and ask: “Am I really happy doing this job?”.
