Summary:
"Skills needed during a recession can differ from those when it’s ‘Business as usual’.  Appreciating this difference is essential to surviving in the current climate.

We have a new Government which is looking hard at budget cuts and this means redundancies in both public and private organisations. There is optimism that IT will play an important role in the economic recovery that is already being felt in certain sectors.

So, How do you know what skills are needed in this day to strengthen your value within your firm and wider industry? How do you prepare for a job search in this environment?
How do you hold down a job and progress within your organisation? How do you set yourselves apart from your peers?

Finally, if you are a fresh graduate, then what can you do to increase your chances of securing a job?"
