The corona pandemic has been dominating our lives for months – the negative consequences can be felt in all areas of life. The labor market has not been spared either. In 2020, many employees faced problems such as stagnating salary levels and a lack of opportunities when looking for a new job.
But not all industries are losers in the current situation. According to “Salary.de”, some professional groups even succeeded in drawing advantages for their industry despite or precisely because of the Corona crisis.
“The past year has shown us that flexibility is definitely a core competence in the labor market for both employees and employers. A degree is not necessarily required in order to pursue future-proof professions. Even with an apprenticeship, employees can take on lucrative and crisis-proof professions ”, says the managing director of Salary.de, Philip Bierbach.
Corona crisis will also be present and formative on the labor market in 2021
Salary.de remuneration experts have collected a large amount of data, including search entries from users on salary.de, the number of vacancies in selected job exchanges and information from customer and advisory meetings. Based on this, they determined the trend occupations for the year 2021.
