On the next #JobAdviceSA chat our new Co-Host @EnnieChipembere has chosen to discuss how employers and jobseekers have been affected by COVID19 and how they will have to adapt to the new world of work that it has contributed to.
Ennie says: “The world of work was already in transition due to digital advances before the COVID19 pandemic crisis hit us. COVID19 is therefore an additional contextual reality that nations, whole industries, employers and job seekers have had to deal with. It changed the world of work as we knew it. For example, as a way of containing the spread of the virus, nations locked down or restricted operations of industries and this meant employers had to adopt new working arrangements.
This has resulted in employees working from home, skeletal staff in offices, or complete shutdown, which has had a negative impact of employment opportunities for job seekers. Therefore in my first #JobAdviceSA chat as main host we are going to take a deeper look into this new world of work under COVID19 and how best to adapt to it.”

Question 1: What is the impact of COVID19 on the world of work?
Question 2: What is the impact of COVID19 on employers that Job Seekers need to think about?
