According to Thomas Friedman, a lat world is one that is quite competitive, with little or no barriers to trade. According to him, the world flatteners have made it possible to connect with people from different parts of the world easily than it was before. The current world is very competitive and due to free movement of resources including labor from one area to the other, i has become very competitive to secure a job. To be precise, jobs have now being left to the well educated in the society.
The effect of such a flat world to a job seeker is that one has to be very competitive with the best academic qualifications. Graduates from different countries can now seek jobs anywhere in the world and thus need of job seekers to be competitive enough. In order to be this competitive, one must be able to get good education and the most current knowledge on the contemporary world issues. Today, information is readily available and one can get it from different platforms like the internet with a lot of ease. Thus, updating your skills as a job seeker is very important. Apart from the flatteners mentioned in Friedman's list, social media can be said to be another important one.
