Qatar-based ABN Corporation's chairman J K Menon, a director of NorkaRoots, recently participated in an overseas employers conference organised virtually by Non-Resident Keralites Affairs (Norka), Government of Kerala, in association with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).
The young entrepreneur said that Covid-19 has changed the world to a point of no return. Several job segments will disappear in the next five to 10 years and the next decade is set to witness a new set of skills and job opportunities.
Menon suggested the education system needs to update to accommodate this change and mold the new generation accordingly. The focus should be on Artificial Intelligence, cloud computing, industrial designing, analytical thinking and problem-solving.
Experts from across the world participated in the conference, which was aimed at creating awareness among job seekers about the latest and innovative career opportunities worldwide in the post-Covid scenario.
NorkaRoots was set up in 2002 to act as an interface between the Non-Resident Keralites (NRKs) and Government of Kerala. It also acts as a forum for addressing the problems faced by NRKs, safeguarding their rights and rehabilitating the returnees.
