About the Event
As the pandemic escalates, a global recession seems inevitable. While we cannot avert the situation, we can always be better prepared to handle it. In the times where there are likely to be lesser opportunities and lower wages, managing to come out of the situation without scaring your career is not easy. But, not impossible either. So, we are going to talk to someone who’s been there done that. This session will give you a first-person perspective of what happens during a recession, what opportunities it impacts and what options are available for you.
