10. Take advantage of learning opportunities
Although a recession is not the time to give up a job to go back to school, it may be the time for professionals to assess their current skill set and determine if they could benefit from additional certifications or training. It is important to anticipate emerging trends and continue to learn new skills to stay competitive in the job market. Professionals who are considering going back to school should evaluate all of their options such as online courses and certification programs, which do not require as much time and expense as obtaining an MBA or four-year degree.
