5 Sectors To Consider For Employment After COVID
During the COVID-19 pandemic many job sectors were hit so badly they may take months to recover fully. Some businesses may take years to recover and some may never recover at all after collapsing during the crisis. However, it appears that some job sectors were more fortunate and may even thrive as the world returns to its pre-pandemic state. So if your job was affected by the pandemic and are looking for a new career, then why not look further into the following 5 job types, to see if they may be for you?
Transportation and logistics
Supply chains keep the country running and never has this shown through more in the COVID-19 pandemic. Supermarkets and delivery companies were overwhelmed with applications for home-delivery drivers and Amazon couldn’t seem to get enough of them. Transportation jobs are essential to keeping a country running when people are unable or unwilling to take themselves to the shops. If you like spending your days driving or like the challenge of organising national and local deliveries, maybe this is for you?
Everyone is looking for a job. The unfortunate thing is that there simply weren’t enough jobs to go around for the people looking for them. As the world goes back to normal and more and more jobs become available, recruitment agencies are going to be essential to helping businesses find the right people for the right roles. Recruitment is a challenge though and requires strong sales and networking skills. But if you want to really test yourself then it may be something to look into further.
Healthcare is essential, regardless of whether or not there is a pandemic. But many healthcare centres, care homes and more have been overwhelmed with patients suffering from COVID-19, not to mention the regular day-to-day patients. While healthcare is a bit more exclusive in terms of how you can qualify for the roles, in the coming years and months healthcare centres will require an influx of admin and custodial staff to help keep things running. If you are considering healthcare obviously be prepared for a much higher inherent health risk than the other jobs on this list.
Retail and grocery
Regardless of what is happening in the world, people need to eat. And they need shops to supply this food. Many of the largest supermarket chains threw the doors open to those who were in desperate need of new employment when the COVID crisis really took hold. Those who closed temporarily are going to start needing new staff, even if only part-time, as the population starts to enjoy further freedoms of movement. Check with your local stores to see what opportunities there may be for you.
Finally the new normal of home and remote working has really opened the floodgates for people to start pushing themselves into their dreams of owning and operating their own businesses from home. There are so many at-home jobs you can look into from blogging and copywriting to digital marketing and freelance sales. In the digital world, there is nothing stopping you from achieving your dreams of making it big with your own business. Just be prepared to grind and work your butt off for it to work.
