Viewpoints from the Employer: Why Aren’t PMETs Getting Hired?
In the current job market, finding a job has not been an easy process for many. The current unemployment rate of 2.3% is at its highest in seven years. A large proportion of those affected have been PMETs, those who are midway through their career.
In this special edition of #askacoach, join Cheng Tan-Feng, former Greater China Head of BNP Paribas as he shares some of the reasons hindering the employment of mid-career PMETs. Tan Feng will also be sharing his views on talent development in future growth sectors and what employers and displaced PMETs can do to prepare for the future.
