My guest today isDavid DeLong , President of Smart Workforce Strategies
Today we explore:
What trends are you seeing in the workplace now due to the year-long pandemic? and What can career coaches do to help their clients navigate their job search?
I appreciate David’s knowledge and perspective on what this pandemic has done to our workforce, and likely worldwide although we didn’t discuss that. His historical perspective of comparing 2020-21 to how we as a nation came out of World War II, is very interesting. He offers clear, specific, tips on what we can do as career coaches when working with our clients in these difficult times.
