Taking extra efforts to stay relevantThere is absolutely no choice for young professionals. Even those who are in manufacturing need totally different skill-sets. For example, there are applications related to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The young professionals need to acquire such skill-sets. Even if the organization does not skill them, they need to acquire these qualifications on a part-time basis or online learning, both modes of learning now increasingly available in most metro cities. It obviously goes without saying that those who acquire such skill-sets will stand a far better chance of making themselves indispensable.
We just need to run where we are and there is no other alternative. Emerging fields like supply chain management have massive potential for employment in the managerial cadre. Even those in marketing need to acquire such skills.
