There’s no question that we’re living through history at the moment, and thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, many things in the world look to be changing. One of the most obvious is the job market, as many companies have been forced to either close temporarily or allow workers to do their job remotely. This is likely to be carried forward into the future, at least to some extent, meaning that employers will be looking for slightly different things from applicants than they are at the moment.
A bigger emphasis on remote working
On the whole, companies who allow remote working have a much wider choice of employee than those who demand work to be done in a physical office environment. This gives you a wider pool of jobs to choose from as a remote candidate – but it also makes it more important than ever that you have the skills to make you stand out from other applicants.
Not only is the choice of candidate important to companies, but also the overall cost of running the company itself. For example, hiring an office can take up a huge portion of a company budget, whereas if all of your team are able to work from home, this frees up more money to invest elsewhere in the business - is something that a lot of companies are looking for!
Our courses can help
If you have always been used to working in a physical environment, it can be a challenge to adapt to remote working. However, thanks to the fact that our courses are already available online, our students are likely to have a significant advantage in the future jobs market, as they are already well adapted to the style of working that will be demanded in the future.
Our courses give you the chance to develop remote working skills right from the start. These include self motivation, time keeping, communication and dedication to your job role. It is arguably much harder to work towards a remote qualification in some respects, as you will need to find your own motivation and work schedule to get all of your tasks done – rather than having a fixed timetable and tutors telling you exactly what to do and when to do it. Learning to work and learn in this way will put you ahead of the game when applying for work, as you will be much less of a gamble than someone who has never had remote working experience.
Investing into your future
So, by taking the choice to study one of our courses, not only will you come away with skills that will last you a lifetime, but you will also get key experience of remote working, which could be an incredibly valuable asset. The professional world is changing, and our team are dedicated to making sure that our students have the skills to keep up with these changes, and remain a valuable asset to any professional industry they choose to join.
