For many of us, it can feel like the coronavirus has put the world on hold.  However, Australia has fared better than most countries economically and there are several approaches you can take to ensure you come out stronger on the other side of this crisis. Upskilling could be an opportunity for greater job security and more options to progress in your career.

Whether you have been asked to assist with work outside your usual remit or find yourself with more time to fill, upskilling makes sense as a strategy that will help you gain valuable new skills to add to your CV.
