How fast do you learn new skills?
You need to take charge of your professional development, be proactive and have life-long learning mindset.
Based on LinkedIn "Future of Skills Report 2019", by 2020, Asia Pacific as the center of growth will face a talent shortage of 12.3 million workers, rising to 47 million in 2030.
