The pandemic has changed the way we eat, the way we shop, party, ultimately, the macroeconomy and the job market.

                                                The Big shift  :

Many business people feel that their industry’s influence in the job market corresponds with the economy’s unemployment rate. During a labor market scenario, employers raise wages and shower candidates with perks. If it is an employer’s market, they cut benefits and payments and attempt to sell a hard bargain. But during this pandemic, we are in an economic slowdown, this one is complex, and the usual tactics don’t apply. Here are the main changes,

  1. Jobs and internships are rebounding as fast as people are getting vaccinated fast.
  2. Workers are trying to avoid positions that might place them at the peril of catching Covid-19, which has led to a significant shift towards work from home jobs.
  3. Many Indians are moving towards areas with the highest employment needs.
  4. While working from home internships have also seen an incredible spike, the internships that require the candidate’s presence, like hospitality, beauty, and travel, are welcoming candidates with open arms after vaccination.
  5. Even though finding the right career path might be challenging for budding candidates, challenging doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

The conventional story centers on the case that unemployment rates are now at an unprecedented high. Nevertheless, a more deciding conclusion for employers might be that, given an economic wreck, job openings are still at unprecedented high levels.

  • Dodge those red flags! Research the companies you are interested in thoroughly, and at the same time make sure your social media profiles don’t have any contents that could be a red flag.

For example, let’s say you want to be in the hospitality industry; Focussing on ‘hospitality internships in Thailand’ can be more helpful than simply googling internships abroad. Following the latest media trends and novel technologies will make you the most qualified person in the room.

You might feel safe, comfortable, and well cared for in your little nest, but if you want to fly, you need to step out of that safe little nest.
