Many Czechs requalifying post pandemic

Interest in requalification courses has been growing among Czechs as a result of the pandemic, Czech Television reported. According to data from labour offices, almost 4,000 people underwent requalification courses this year. In previous years, the interest in requalification was low.

The majority of those switching jobs come from the gastronomy and tourist industries. According to Czech public television the number of traditional taxis in Prague has seen a steep drop. Many taxi drivers have either taken other jobs or joined various transport apps and ride-sharing services.
