Transcript for Where to find work during the pandemic
We turn to the millions of Americans facing financial hardships through the pandemicment some encouraging news for job seekers. There are so many opportunities out there, it helps if you know where to look. Rebecca Jarvis is back, has some answers for us, good morning, again, Rebecca. Reporter: Yes, nice to see you again, robin. That is the good news. There are some job openings out there. Do you have to know where to look and you also have to know how to tell your story in this environment. This morning, while a new year brings a fresh start many are still feeling the economic effects of the pandemic. With more than 19 million Americans still filing unemployment claims each week, but for job seekers, there's a bright spot. Despite having a really tough situation right now in the labor market, we do see opportunities. Reporter: Linkedin currently has more than 14 million job listings available right now. The top five roles most in demand, salesperson, registered nurse, software engineer, javascript developer and food delivery driver and for those looking to make their own schedule, companies like taskrabbit and instacart are continuously hiring with instacart increasing its corporate roles by 50% in the first six months of the year. A lot don't realize they have quite transferable skills. If you're adept at working in a restaurant you can use that experience you've had face-to-face with people and transfer that into a customer service specialist. Reporter: Those fundamental skills, strong communication, attention to detail, resoshsfulness, problem solver. These are the kind of skills that no manager wants to turn down. They are in need no matter what the job is. All right, so, Rebecca, let's say you want to go for one of these jobs but it's not in a field that you're in prior to the pandemic. What's your advice? Well, my advice is to look at all of the free courses that are online right now. They are free and they will help you build those technical skills, the courses, there's tutorials by Microsoft, a number of companies are even offering like Google, for example, an IBM certificate so you don't need a college degree in order to get jobs in some of these tech companies because of the explosion of e-commerce and the pandemic. Such great suggestions. Thanks so much, Rebecca.
