Thanks to the rise of coronavirus in early 2020, millions of businesses have been compromised, meaning they’ve had to close their doors for the last time. This had led to even more jobs being lost, putting the financial health of millions at risk. Since then, millions more job positions have opened up in businesses that have thrived, and if you’re looking for a career change – whether you were made redundant or not – you may consider a role in one of these industries that have thrived during the pandemic.
Health and fitness
Thanks to gyms being closed in many countries around the world, many people are looking at alternative ways to keep fit within the confines of their home and because of this, the health and fitness industry has thrived. People are looking for new and exciting ways of keeping fit, without putting too much effort in. So, if you’re talented in the fitness industry, you might look at publishing meal plans, starting a health and fitness blog, or even conducting exercise classes via livestream for people to join. There are so many possibilities!
We have seen the unfortunate loss of many lives during the pandemic and because of this, the funeral industry is still doing very well. If you’re someone that cares about people, then entering this sector might be another career opportunity. The funeral industry size may have grown, but the careers available could be very rewarding. Helping people deal with the death of their loved ones by providing a beautiful service can be extremely difficult, but also an essential step when assisting those that are grieving.
When looking at industries that have thrived during the pandemic, it’s always useful to look at sectors that people will always need no matter what’s going on in the world. Homes are a perfect example of that! Stepping foot into a real estate career will almost guarantee job security, as people will always need homes, and people will always be looking to buy, sell or rent. If you’ve got a driving license, why not consider a career as a realtor?
The food industry is another sector that will always thrive. Perhaps you’ve always loved the idea of working in a kitchen, maybe even with the dream of running your own kitchen one day? While restaurants may be closed in many countries right now for people to eat out, there are millions of kitchens that are still open for people to order their food delivered to their door. A career in the food industry could lead to much bigger and better opportunities!
Gifts and occasions
Finally, since we can’t physically see our loved ones, many people have taken to sending personalised gifts to their friends and family to show how much they care. You could create hampers, sell handmade gifts on Etsy, or even design personalised images and wall art – there are so many avenues to explore!
Don’t let the pandemic prevent you from pursuing a new career in 2021!
