Here is an opportunity to re-launch, upgrade, update or reinvigorate your career in social services. For those displaced from their regular employment, it is time to re-launch and pick up yourself on your career path. End of contract, end of project, the pandemic and indeed prevailing economic situations; one or multiple of these situations brought an end to some persons’ job in this space. For some others who entered the social service as volunteers or interns, here’s an opportunity to push themselves up; some others have learnt on the job as subordinates, but need to upgrade. The SDGs brought their own challenge, forcing professionals to update their knowledge and skills; the pandemic has brought with it, yet another reason to learn new skills and update existing knowledge and job experience. It is yet another opportunity to get better at what you are doing by taking up more challenging engagements. Below opportunities are available for quick review and timely response:
