Did you know that the average person will spend roughly 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime? Given how much time we dedicate to building our careers, it’s obvious that our careers were the first things we considered changing when Covid dawned upon us. As days turned to weeks, and weeks extended into months and years, we had a lot of time on our hands to consider what makes us happy. For many of us Covid was the catalyst to making drastic lifestyle changes, starting with our careers.
Recent research from Totaljobs found that nearly 89% of UK workers were looking for a new job in 2021. And they didn’t just look for a slight change in location or role – 45% of workers said they wanted to completely change sectors. But how do you change careers whilst still working full-time? Many people have been turning to eLearning, which has seen a significant increase in demand, across sectors, over the past two years. eLearning programs can be completed faster than in-person courses, not surprising considering how much more time we are all spending online. Even employers are recognising the validity of certificates from expert providers, as opposed to only favouring university degrees.
Another sector that has experienced significant growth over the past two years has been the global beauty industry. According to Statista, this is valued at $395.7 billion in 2022, driven by an increasing demand for skincare, ‘at-home spa and salon’ products and haircare. Time spent at home, and without the ability to frequent spas and salons, has seen consumers investing in their beauty, health, and wellbeing.
