How to land a job and why you might need help!

Finding a career path today is not as easy, compared to even 20 years before. Today we live in a world with a myriad of career options. Job boards are filled with many scrumptious looking roles. But in reality a large chunk of the skilled population struggle to land a job- the irony that stares us in the face. While 2020 has not been a friend, this was true even before the Pandemic.

The Pandemic has made worse what was an already bleak job market. Why has it become fundamentally harder to find a job in this era? Well for one automation has rocked many jobs into nonexistence as it continues to threaten several others.

An article by CNBC in 2019 states that only hard skills does not land you a job as employers look for soft skills that enable you to adapt to future automation of your job.

Then there is the development of Artificial Intelligence- machines whose very purpose is to replace human work and thinking. A Forbes article voiced the concerns over the changes in the job market in the start of 2019- way before the 2020 Pandemic was in sight. It’s predictions include threats of new technologies and alarms of the drastic increase of unemployment levels. Again this was before the Pandemic which has only sped this process.

With rampant technological advancement, being human seems like a crime- it can be especially stressful when seeking a job. A lot of the work we do or careers we take on seem to become more and more redundant as we are ruthlessly threatened to be replaced by unsympathetic machines.

It is more relevant than ever to have a plan, to be adaptable to abrupt tantrums of the market and prepare for a job environment that favours this forced versatility. Every business starts with hopes to solve a problem in the world, 408 Consultancy envisions to equip the struggling with the right armor to fight against the ever challenging requirements of companies.

How many people have you met who absolutely love their job? Some eventually get to what they love doing only after years of frustrated attempts and wasted energy.

You have probably heard of people saying that landing a job these days has a lot to do with luck. In truth such blind strokes of luck work for barely a few- for it isn’t luck but their oblivion to not knowing what worked for them.

Believe that you will get there not with luck but with hard work and persistence.

The reason for your struggles are strongly linked to various factors and from experience your struggle is unique to you, your background mingled with other general things like for example your sector of work.
