Four Professional Areas with High-Demand for Workers in 2021


As the world recollects after the disaster that was 2020, new trends are emerging in several fields and industries. Therefore, besides the rise of the work-from-home employee and the downfall of small and medium-sized businesses that couldn’t adapt fast enough, we now see an increase in demand for workers in fields like technology, healthcare, business development, e-commerce, digital marketing, and more. 

While an increase in demand for workers in various fields is not unusual, it’s important to specify that most of these positions don’t require an advanced degree. In fact, someone interested could get the necessary information and qualifications online, which means almost anyone could make the switch to a new (and probably better paid) field. 

Therefore, today let’s have a quick look at the top four professional areas where the demand for workers is high and the conditions for acceptance are not that strict.  

#1: Healthcare Workers

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everybody knows there is a shortage of healthcare workers. But this is not necessarily a new trend – the healthcare system was understaffed even before the craziness started unfolding. 

Moreover, the positions that lack personnel are not for specialists but for healthcare supporting staff (those who handle administrative tasks and data processing), nurses, pharmacy technicians, dental assistants, home health aides, and more on the same note. 

Therefore, someone interested in entering the field can take a healthcare online course and then apply for a job. While it’s true that a job in healthcare can be tough, it’s also rewarding and the payment is quite good. 

#2: E-commerce Workers

The fact that more people were stuck at home and brick-and-mortar stores were closed, led to a fast rise in e-commerce sales. However, retailers had to solve a few employment and logistics problems before they could enjoy the boost. 

As a result, companies in the e-commerce industry look for people who can cover positions such as warehouse workers, delivery drivers, personal shoppers, supply chain associates, package handlers, and more. 

#3: Loan & Mortgage Experts

According to recent HR statistics, the hiring for these positions increased 59% compared to the situation in 2019. The pandemic and quarantine fueled the people’s desire to buy homes, away from the stuffy and small city apartments where they can enjoy a bit of fresh air in their own garden. 

As a result, the need for loan and mortgage experts increased almost overnight, all over the world.   

#4: Digital Marketing Professionals

As online sales increased, there were more companies looking to get buyers on their side. As a result, the request for digital marketing professionals increased nearly 33% last year. The highest demand is for social media managers, SEO specialists, digital marketing specialists, and so on. 

Wrap Up

As you can see, many of these positions don’t require advanced degrees. Moreover, some of them can be done remotely, which is a great opportunity for people who want to move out of big cities. It’s also a chance for people who want to change their field to experience online education and enjoy its many benefits. 

However, in the end, big cities are still the main source of jobs, especially for workers who need to be physically present.
