Re-evaluating Your Skills for a Post COVID World

COVID-19 has disrupted everyday life in every aspect, especially in Alberta’s fragile economic landscape, however this is not to say that it is impossible to create value for yourself in the new post COVID-19 world. There are many new opportunities in the new economic landscape, with the vast majority being in technology. COVID-19 has accelerated the rate in which everyday life is digitized. Work and school from home is the new normal in many countries including the United States and Canada, and technology is the enabler.
