Life as We Knew It

How Covid-19 could positively impact your career goals

For many of us the "new normal" will eventually set in. Some days it may not seem like it, but there is a light at the end of this very bumpy and long tunnel. The economy's landscape will change drastically, and with it will come changes in many people's career fields.

This time of working in very different and stressful workplaces, or working from home (typing on a sofa table set up in my bedroom at this very moment), or you got your hours or job cut, balancing homeschooling your children along with all your other responsibilities right now, this time doesn't lend extra day dreaming or goal making time for many of us. But when you do have a moment to dream, think about what your world will look like.

Perhaps if you've been in the service industry, you're not interested in continuing. What skills do you currently have from working with people, problem solving, your attention to detail, that would translate into a new career?

Some of those careers need training, a college degree, or just guts to talk your way into that job! We at Ponca Works are hopeful that after this pandemic is over, that you will look into those career fields that interest you, or that offer more security for you and your family.

We are working on what our landscape of Ponca City will look like after this, what our in-demand jobs will be, if they will have changed. We would love to help point you in the right direction. As always, feel free to drop us a line.

Stay safe.
