How to Grow Your Skill Set And Advance Your Career
Many professionals have experienced furloughs, layoffs, or reduced hours as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But there’s a silver lining: Having more time on your hands means you have an opportunity to focus on your professional development, which can be a game-changer for your career.
“We live in a skills-based economy,” says Latesha Byrd, a Charlotte, N.C.-based professional career coach and consultant. In other words, many employers base their hiring decisions on a job candidate’s abilities; thus, having a robust set of skills makes you more marketable to employers.
Whether you’re working or not, you should be taking steps to build your professional skills in order to stay relevant. Here are a few tips for developing your skills and advancing your career.

That echoes the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) findings that nearly 2 out of 5 HR professionals (39 percent) believe developing the next generation of organizational leaders will be their greatest human capital challenge in the next 10 years.
