The Covid-19 pandemic has practically changed the workplace and fresh graduates and job hunters in the post-pandemic era, also referred to as the next normal, will have to shift their search strategies to land the job that gives them the best compensation and benefits package.

In general, the jobs that will matter most in the next normal will be influenced by the lingering aftershocks of the pandemic, the expanded use of new technologies and it has to be said, a looming recession. Some specific developments that paved the way for these top jobs to emerge include work from home and hybrid work arrangements, increased demand for digital skills, mass layoffs and bankruptcies and restricted travel and movement of people.
