What Jobs Are in High Demand Now?
While some industries have struggled during the pandemic, others have seen an uptick in business and demand.
According to a LinkedIn analysis of job postings in late March, here were the jobs with the highest demand:
- Store Associate
- System Operator
- Certified Public Accountant
- Health Care Specialist
- Construction Worker
- Warehouse Manager
- Vehicle Mechanic
- Academic Adviser
- Delivery Driver
These jobs are in high demand because of the new reality COVID-19 has created.
Grocery stores are considered essential, for example, because people need food, medicine, and, yes, toilet paper. They need people to stock the stores and run the register, which is why grocery stores all across the county are hiring at record-pace.
The same goes for convenience stores. 7-Eleven, as of right now, has the most open job postings in the United States.
Warehouse workers, delivery drivers, and others are in demand as more people seek goods delivered straight to their doors.
Systems operators are needed to ensure critical software and IT are maintained to keep us online and video conferencing with co-workers, family members, and friends.
Psychologists are seeing increased demand as individuals deal with the stress and mental anguish of living in quarantine.
