Skill development becomes imperative to overcome the job losses
Do you consider skill development programs effective in helping an individual to deal with job losses and find work opportunities?
Skill development becomes an indispensable part of the current scenario when jobs are shrinking and the economy weakening in the country. In the covid pandemic, the economy is badly hit and people lost jobs which hampered the normal life of people. Though efforts are on to revive the economy but right now seems difficult to immediately normalize the situation.
However, what I feel is skill development can take us closer to prosperity and generate more employability if paid proper attention. Skill development provides more opportunities and people can earn some bucks easily without being dependant on others. There are many sectors which can provide training to candidates and make them job-ready. Although current coronavirus situation doesn't allow people to move out freely, certain skills can strengthen the employability of people and will allow them to work even from home.
I also feel traditional degrees ineffective in the current job market, therefore, I strongly feel more focus should be given to skill development programs to reduce the job crunch in the market.
