It is by no means a stretch to say that many Americans right now are fearful for their future employment. Either the job role they hold is in question, or they have already become unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Suddenly finding yourself without work due to no fault of your own can be a stressful time. After all, bills still need to be paid.

But for some people, this could be the push they need to help them get the job they have always wanted or used this opportunity to retrain for a different career.

Healthcare

There are many different roles you can work in the healthcare industry. People will always need to be seen by medical professionals, so taking up a position within the healthcare industry can help you build a long term career and feel more confident about having long term job security.

Choose a more supporting but still worthwhile role within a healthcare facility or look for healthcare jobs that require some degree of training or even choose to further your career with a different position or promotion.

From general practitioners, hospital settings, therapists, physical therapists, opticians, or even care home settings. The options are endless and positions that people will require staff for many years to come.

Become your own boss

You might be thinking, what exactly can I offer to create a business all of my own and become my boss. While this route isn’t as job-secure as working for an established employer, nothing is stopping you from diving in and building the perfect job role for you.

Talk it through with some family and friends and look at what skills you have to offer others and what qualifications you have that can help you build your own business. Look at hobbies, personality traits, and experience gained from current or previous employment and find a way to see how this can all help you start a new business. Look for a gap in the market and find out if you can fill a need that others aren’t and start your journey to become a small business owner now!

Teaching

Do you love to help people learn and have a flair for teaching? Then looking at training to become a teacher or getting a job role in an education setting could be perfect for you. Be it kindergarten, young children, teens, or even helping adults who return to education via evening classes or online learning. There are many job roles in the education setting that could be the perfect job role for you.

Some positions will require you to undergo formal training to allow you to qualify for your chosen job role; others will allow you to learn on the job and train in a more practical setting. All you need to ask is what job role you actually want to do.

Despite the uncertainty of the economy due to COVID-19, being proactive when it comes to looking for your dream job can help you forge a new career path and find the job that is perfect for you.
