Do you see a lot of businesses looking for workers?

With covid starting to die out in the US and all over the world, businesses have started to open up again. Many businesses and shops have help wanted signs, and yet it seems like people aren't going for those jobs. Do you worry that people won't be going back to work?

Yes; it does depend on the businesses though.

There is currently a big call globally for DEI policies within Workplaces. That is, organisations must be aware of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion when recruiting new employees. This has expanded job opportunities for many people.

Now, it's true; people don't want to work regular 9 to 5s anymore; so this gives employees some form of power over work conditions.

This trend, statistically, is here to stay. 

But the real question on people's mind is, 'Why should I work a 9 to 5 when I can work for myself?'

The global freelance economy is valued at over $4 trillion. In the US alone, over $1 trillion.

Freelancing and ecommercing look very appealing now, doesn't it?

I think this is down to mandates and people not wanting to work when they are still able to get as much, if not more from unemployment. I know someone who rode it out until the end. Some states extended it and some never stopped it and don't plan to anytime soon. I think it would be a good time to get a job though as you can ask for more upfront.

I'm not afraid that people might not go to work because they will. We all need money to survive. However, I don't think they'll work the same way they may have pre-pandemic. People are now trying to leave the rat race created by the capitalist mindset that your work is all there is in life. The younger generation wants to leave no stone unturned in their quest for a better life and I am 100% supportive of that. The workers now understand their value and are not afraid to ask for what they deserve. So yes, people will go back to work but only for employers that are fair and treat them properly.

Awesome question.  I have noticed even pre-pandemic that many companies and businesses are highering.  So who cares that I have two master's degrees?  I have noticed that most are higher for highly technical positions.  For example,  Software Engineers, Network Engineers, Data Engineers, etc.So because of the pandemic, I decided to get myself into a self-paced Network Engineering Bootcamp.  I've just finished and am preparing for the Cisco Certification exams.  The less technical seemingly wide-open field seems to be Business Development often termed Customer Success in technology sales like Software As A Service (SaaS).

The other thing that many are choosing to do is to not go back to work but to work from home or to start a business from home etc.

Certainly, COVID has been a wake-up call.  One of my masters was already in Information Technology Management.  I'm not sure how much will be enough at this point.
