The trainer brainer: Here's why you must be open to any change

The saying that ‘We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are’ must be taken into consideration by anybody who is looking to have a successful career. In fact, the career development scenario is very dynamic today and the recruiting agencies are also showcasing various changes from time to time in the methods and approaches that are undertaken to select potential candidates for various openings.
Adaptation to change is considered important for the youth since if they are not open to change and prepared to go along with it, they will be left behind. The circumstances necessitating changes can come from any source in a job placement environment; it can be changing industry trends or the changing work profiles, the invasion of technology or even the varying availability of manpower. Whatever the cause for change, it is imperative to recognise that it is a part and parcel of professional life and one should move on by making suitable life adjustments.
I have found, especially during numerous human resource programmes that I conduct for the youth, that not many are open to accepting changes. They are going by a conditioned mindset and only look forward to opportunities within set frameworks. Only a few who are well sensitised to the situation are able to grasp its gravity and are able to come to terms with it instantly or at least within a short period of time. I would encourage fresh graduates to keep their mind open and receptive to change, since managing change is the key to success. The following points about change would be beneficial to all those who want to know more about it and take suitable steps to come to terms with it for their social and professional success.
Change always gives you an opportunity to learn more and newer aspects that would make your professionally strong. The quicker you embrace change, the more effective it will work towards your success in all environments. Adapting to change gives you the flexibility to modify your preparation to face the selection process much more comfortably.
