COVID-19 has ravaged the world. While its primary effect has been on our health, it has also had a devastating impact on our working lives and our careers. Whole industries were shut down through the lockdown and many of them are struggling to re-emerge. For young people entering the labour market the impact has been particularly devastating. Inevitably career development practitioners are left to pick up the pieces and to help people to find their way in the new world. In this presentation, Professor Tristram Hooley will talk about how we can best help those most impacted by COVID to reconstruct their careers. We will also consider how career development can contribute towards the creation of a new normal that is fairer and more socially just.

Learning outcomes:
  • The social and inter-connected nature of our careers highlighted by COVID
  • In a period of recession what opportunities are available for young workers?
  • How we are going to rebuild our society as we rebuild our careers
