#1. Job searches spike as COVID-19 pandemic spreads
Searches for jobs that can be done from home and that start immediately have increased by more than 100%, according to the founder of a British job search site. That makes sense because many companies have had to lay-off staff or people have been ordered to stay at home as the COVID-19 pandemic hits our economies. However, many of the jobs that are currently available can’t be done from home. For instance, industries that are currently most in need of workers, such as supermarkets, pharmacies, and companies with a delivery arm are looking for staff to work in stores and warehouses. And so while there are jobs available, many of those are not a direct match for the ones that have been lost or they’re not compatible with the stay-at-home policies.
