April President’s Message

Kavita Gupta, ATD-LA PresidentOver the past two years, I’ve had the privilege and honor of helping dozens of members and non-members, ranging from students to directors, by offering general counsel on how to structure a resume in the new digital age and guidance on the difference between jobs in instructional design, facilitation, organizational change, and human resources.

Over the next five years, 40%-60% of all companies’ portfolios will shift to online learning. It has become a necessity for talent development professionals to have an understanding of online learning platforms such as Google Classroom, Docebo, WizIQ, Adobe Captivate, Elucidate, Articulate, Shift, Blackboard Learn, Udemy, Teachable, and Chatbots (to name a few), as well as which ones are more adapted to schools versus organizations.  

Recognizing the importance of social media in our lives has also become a necessity. 95% of recruiters use platforms such as LinkedIn to vet candidates. 57% of employers are less likely to interview a candidate they can’t find online. And 44% will recruit a candidate based on their social media content (Leach, Caroline, What Successful People do in Social Media, 2019).

Keeping up with the times and staying on top of economic and educational trends have become key ingredients for our success in the marketplace. We must be conversant with the knowledge, skills, and experience that employers and clients need.

Are you equipped to face the demands of our new and changing landscape?
