Coronavirus has pushed the global economy to the brink of crisis, and it can turn out to be the most severe one over the last century. The virus has already cost the world hundreds of billions of dollars, and the unemployment levels have risen by almost 15% across the globe. With all that in mind, experts have raised a question: what professions will be in demand in the near future while also being quick to learn?
Internet marketing has landed itself a spot at the very top of the list when it comes to well-paid easy-to-learn professions. Experts believe that Internet marketing and social media promotion are in demand. Lots of people have already picked up this profession. What’s also great about it is that you can begin making money almost right off the bat with minimum experience.
IT development and different programming languages are certainly great options, but they are not quick to learn. Proper training takes at least a few months, and by the way, Google offers online courses, some of them even free of charge
Another job in high demand, albeit not so easy to get into, is that of a crisis manager. Experts in this field are sought after both during and in the aftermath of crises. Companies are in dire need of such experts who can analyze the business, identify its strengths and weaknesses, build and execute a turnaround plan. They can also be employed as external specialists.
Another great and quick option is learning to work with online broadcasts: the lockdown made a lot of businesses turn to videoconferencing, making Zoom the giant it has become. The service now allows businesses, educational facilities and others to function under lockdown. The show business has also had to make changes after the devastating spring of 2020: from now on we will be able to attend concerts and theatre plays online from the couch. It’s also unlikely that we will be stuck with just YouTube live streams for too long — in the near future, AR and 3D video will become much more prevalent. Theaters and concert halls will desperately need experts capable of converting everything happening on stage into digital on the fly.
Another unexpected result of the pandemic is that people, having more free time on their hands, are now turning to financial markets and investments.
