Today’s job market feels uncertain. How long will it be this way? We caught up with Tara Sinclair, an associate professor at The George Washington University and a senior fellow at Indeed, the #1 job site worldwide. During our conversation, Tara shares her thoughts on the current labor market and interprets what it can mean for your future job planning. Her research focuses on recessions, so her insights on labor market trends can help you think through your career options and goals during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
In episode #114 of I Want Her Job The Podcast, we discuss industries where job growth is strong, ways to pivot your career and possible economic scenarios within the labor market. We also talk about the continued job strength within the technology and health care sectors, as well as options to pursue certificates, training and degrees for jobs in those sectors. Tara also shares insights into the great divide between job seekers.
