Being unemployed is never easy – on the person, his family or on the society as a whole. Here is what you need to do to get viable employment. 

To get a job and then to sustain it, a candidate must possess two types of skills: hard skills and soft skills. Hard skills are basically the primary talents one can have like engineering, programming, designing, and so on so forth. On the other hand, soft skills are those that let you manage yourself and people around effectively; some examples are social skills, communication skills, emotional intelligence, time management and so on.

A person who has both will have better employment opportunities. So what one should do to learn both, especially, if you cannot afford to go expensive university, or you do not have enough time due to personal reasons?

Be mindful of one thing that to grow professionally – you have to develop the habit of learning. As a famous American author Alvin Toffler rightly said:

“Illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

So 2020 is not far away – be comfortable with your anxieties, fears and above all uncertainties. Perhaps, millennials do not have many options to escape this reality.
