Ready for a new opportunity? Here are the steps to take to prepare.
1. You have a unique background and strengths. Examine and reflect on them. Search for the newest trends and where you would need to go.
2. Find training opportunities. Apart from traditional learning options, there are many online resources, including Microsoft Learn, Udemy, Udacity Nanodegrees, Coursera, FutureLearn, LinkedIn Learning, and Google Digital Garage. For some professions, hands-on learning is critical, and there are companies such as LabsLand, which brings real equipment labs to anywhere in the world, or Labster, which enables simulations. New technologies will bring us new forms of education.
3. Stay informed of industry trends. Follow influencers, blogs and build a network online and offline with people who have the same interests as you. Understand what is happening in your field.
