As the economic effects of COVID-19 continue, many Australian job seekers want to know which in-demand jobs can offer resilience and a secure future.
The post-pandemic work economy has left many people feeling stagnant and unsure. As job roles shift and industries rebuild, concerns over job security are at an all-time high. That’s why it’s imperative for job seekers to understand which occupations are in demand and can offer them both future job security and a steady income.
If your job has been affected by the pandemic, it makes sense to plan your next move cautiously. A great place to start can be assessing which parts of the labour market are showing resilience and high demand for workers.
