More than 73 million Americans say they plan to look for jobs that are more pandemic proof once the job market starts to rebound.
Jill Gonzalez, analyst with WalletHub, which conducted the survey, said employees have changed.
"Meaning a lot of them are going to be working from home, more remote work, so that we don't have to worry about things like shut downs in the future. The good news for them is that when jobs do start to become more available, that's exactly what we're going to be seeing. A lot of jobs that are working from home that are remote so that is good for the people that are in the market for that,” Gonzalez said.
Analysts expect jobs in pharmaceuticals, delivery, e-commerce, telecommunications and electronics will do well.
But, restaurants, retail stores and travel could be in trouble for a while.
Gonzalez said most Americans believe unemployment won't return to pre-pandemic levels for a year at least.
