It is hard enough to find a job in this world, let alone figure out what you want to do and what aligns with what you know how to do. The 2020 pandemic has made so many things difficult, but one thing that should be on anyone with less than a college degrees mind is their career path. The uncertainty of the future has been on everyone's mind, especially when it comes to financial stability.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics has updated their predictions for young people who are looking to start their careers. As we all know experience is as good as gold when it comes to landing your dream job and getting to where you want to be in your career. Due to the pandemic, a lot of starter jobs are declining in terms of projection for the upcoming years. This includes hosts and hostesses, bartenders, cashiers, waiters and waitresses, flight attendants, and so many more.
Many detailed occupations will be increasing in the coming years such as epidemiologists, web developers, microbiologists, biochemists, and many of the sort. When it comes to being fresh out of college, I would keep this in mind when searching for a career path. The bottom line here is that low wage jobs are expected to decline even faster than before the pandemic, while people with bachelors and graduate degrees will have an increase in job availability after the pandemic. This can be good news for people that are just starting their career fresh out of college, because opportunity is vast.
Though the pandemic has affected all of us in many different ways, the economy and state of your financial standing seems to be the top concern for many. Through knowing which fields will have increased and decreased availability, you will be able to plan accordingly and be prepared for anything. This article goes more in depth about these careers and how the pandemic has changed the rate of change for these fields.
