The founder of the Pruffi hunting agency, the founder of the Anti-Slavery HR service, the most famous hiring specialist Alena Vladimirskaya analyzed the situation with the collapsed oil, the widespread retirement, the global crisis and made pessimistic conclusions. However, if you are involved in medicine, cybersecurity or low-cost entertainment, the current zero will give you a chance to climb, and very high.
So, according to Vladimirskaya, what happened yesterday with oil, which became negative in price, is the beginning of life in a new world. This means that in a new world of career opportunities and impossibilities.
First, about the joyless:
“I'm tired of talking about the fact that 80 percent of those who read my fb (and you are 160 thousand) will be fired in the coming year. All Gazpromneft managers, commercial directors of advertising agencies, chief (and non-chief) editors of major media, and even most of the programmers. All of you will be fired! (You can shout that I'm hyping now, but just remember this post) ".
The stalemate and the deepest crisis around the world will show how “Booking, Skyscanner, all these Arinbnb and a million subscription services in the world will collapse. Silicon Valley will be covered with blood of unfortunate exits and bankruptcies and will cease to be so dainty and influential forever."
However, a crisis, even such a one, is always an interesting opportunity: “new unicorns will appear”! Here they are:
¶ Medicine and everything around it. This is an emerging trend. There will be new Zuckerbergs and Durovs and billion-dollar exits.
¶ Robotics. Life has shown that people are the weakest link in the economy. The sooner you change them to non-sick and non-mischievous, the more sustainable the business.
¶ Automation of everything and everyone. Completely transparent. Distributed and remote. And easy to implement.
¶ Agro and production of cheap fast food. Countries already understand that globalization is dangerous. Strategic food and fuel supplies must be kept inside. Otherwise, one bat in Chinese soup puts half of India in a state of food riots.
¶ Cybersecurity and data. Protect everything to the point of paranoia and censor everything, because the next riots and revolutions will be online (did you see yesterday's story with the navigator? This is just the beginning).
¶ Armament. The logic of growth is the same as in robotics.
¶ Entertainment. Yes, there will be very little money, but there will be a lot of new types of entertainment (online streaming, free online concerts, etc.), beautiful mass optimistic films. They always do this during crises so that people have hope and there are no riots.
What conclusions can be drawn? Alena Vladimirskaya states that the best thing in the current situation is not to shout about what you have lost, but to look ahead: “Just look for new career points - where you will grow. And then, if the dictatorship does not happen, you can become very rich."
