COVID upended the job market & focused employers on skills
COVID had few silver linings. But perhaps one of them is that it upended the labor market in ways that, for once, favored workers over employers.
The switch to virtual meant that recruiters were forced to urgently find people with the right digital skills instead of waiting for those that had gone to the "right" schools.
"The talent market became a little dry," Jonathan Rochelle, VP of Product Management, Learning Content & Instructor Experience at Linkedin, says during a Global Stage livestream discussion.
LinkedIn data, he adds, shows that the trend continues to grow.
