Economic recovery surges post-pandemic
The job market has bounced back faster than many experts predicted, with 943,000 nonfarm payroll jobs being created by the end of July. After a historic high unemployment rate of 14.8% in April 2020, notable gains in sectors like leisure, hospitality, local government, education, and professional and business services have managed to get the unemployment rate back down to as low as 5.4% in just over a year.
As the economy continues to recover, you may be wondering what the most resilient industries and fields are as the current crisis winds down. Grocery stores, delivery services, retail via delivery, and DIY home repair have always been resilient, so we can expect similar performance in this case. Experts also predict mini-booms in industries like healthcare, physical therapy, and other industries where demand has been postponed by the pandemic.
For example, elective procedures that have been put off during the pandemic, like plastic surgery, knee replacements, or other optional operations should see a boom post-pandemic as people start to become more confident in recovery from the pandemic.
Perhaps the big question many people are asking is: Has the pandemic permanently shifted a larger share of our consumer spending to online retailers and services? If this is true, skills related to e-commerce will be in more and more demand as the economy continues to recover from the pandemic.
A strong recovery in the labor market could have lasting implications for the federal budget and economy overall, but certain groups of workers are still struggling to find jobs, and employers are having trouble filling empty positions. This mismatch between available jobs, skills, and location are a strong indicator that there remains more to be done for our economy to continue to recover.
More new jobs mean more training
The labor market continues its recovery as notable job gains occurred in professional and business services, transportation and warehousing, private education, manufacturing, and other services for the month of August, according to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The same bureau reported monthly job growth of 586,000 so far this year.
As we start to reach the inevitable post-pandemic scenario, it’s important to understand that education has more or less moved on from its traditional setup, and “reskilling” is vital in this economy. As the world adopts a digital standard, it’s important to polish old skills and learn new ones — which is why we can expect a boom in training classes across all industries.
