In each issue of our CareerWise Weekly newsletter, we share a selection of curated articles to help you stay up to date on all things career – from strategies and tools, to labour market information, to government announcements. While many of last year’s top articles were directly connected to the pandemic, in 2021, we saw strong reader interest in interview and resume information. We also saw keen interest in staying on top of trends, from in-demand jobs to essential skills to workforce technology shifts. Here, we count down the top 10 most-read articles from our 2021 newsletters.
Thank you to our readers for your continued enthusiasm for the latest news, views and resources in career development! We look forward to delivering more thought-provoking and informative articles in the year ahead.
