Getting Jobs in a Post-Pandemic World

Episode Notes

The orthodoxy on what makes for a traditional career path is changing — and for the better. As technological change accelerates and the labor market around the world shifts, nontraditional job training methods like reskilling and upskilling grow in popularity. But how are these new programs for training workers and helping them pivot careers working? Hosts Ryan Heath and Luiza Savage talk with guests who know what it's like to participate in or run one of these programs.
