If you could go back in time, what would you invest in pre-Covid? Would you switch the employment position that you were in to something different? The days of the pandemic have been a major make or break period for businesses, with some skyrocketing to greater success. According to Market Watch, Zoom has made as much profit in three months as it did in all of 2019 with their stock shooting up 22%.

Unfortunately we cannot turn back the clock to advance our personal careers, but studying the past and present allows us to look forward and make educated decisions. Let’s take a look at pre-Covid trends in employment positions, and which industries now appear to have a bright future with rising sales.   

The Reports: 

In December of 2019, LinkedIn published their third annual U.S. Emerging Jobs Report, showing the top 15 jobs that have emerged over the last five years. The top 15 emerging jobs in the U.S. included these roles: 

  • Customer Success Specialist 
  • Sales Development Representative
  • Chief Revenue Office 

The Predictions: 

Some industries have seen a profit increase throughout the past months, and are likely to continue to do so post-pandemic. Love Money published an article on industries that will likely boom after the pandemic. These include: 

  • Cybersecurity
  • E-Learning Resources
  • Online Fitness
  • Online Supermarket Deliveries 
  • Pharmaceuticals 
  • Remote Medical Services

Our Findings: 

At Sellers Hub, we have continued to see growth throughout the pandemic in the roles listed in LinkedIn’s pre-Covid report. These are still positions that companies, whether in the Tech, Medical, or Automation industries, are actively looking for. A career in these sales related positions is beneficial because at the end of the day, businesses are always seeking to increase their revenue. We believe these roles will continue to be in demand and the industries prospering during the pandemic will continue to grow even after the pandemic.

As we adapt to new ways of working, doing business and living, and take into account these trends, perhaps we can come out of this pandemic even in a better position than before.
