COVID-19 Vaccine Creates Hiring Opportunities in 2021!

The recent news about the FDA’s covid-19 vaccine approval has the employment community buzzing with excitement over new hiring opportunities set to begin during the first quarter of 2021, (January - March).

National Pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Kroger are already leading the way with new hiring initiative announcements this month followed closely by warehouse & logistics giants, (FedEx, UPS, and DHL).

Are these jobs not a good fit for you?

Spring seasonal hiring events, rising work from home employment, graduate recruiting season, and teen summer job program enrollment are also expected to add a much-needed boost to the American workplace. Highly anticipated city and state lock-down roll-back initiatives will continue to increase the demand for more essential workers as people spring back out to pursue life under “normal circumstances".

STOP right here

Check out the updated list of current hiring opportunities on our #workfromhome and #hiringnews topic pages to access other hiring opportunities within your respective area of interest.

Still interested in securing one of these new job opportunities? Read on!

Furloughed, laid-off, and unemployed workers still struggling to secure unemployment benefits will finally have access to new and immediate income alternatives to look forward to during the quickly approaching new year. Looking for a career change? Some of these companies are offering no experience needed/on the job training employment options among select job openings throughout the country.

Preparation is Key!

Use this time before the new year to update your job search tools and refresh your interview techniques. To help you prepare to take on these new job opportunities, we have created a brief outline of the most prominent industries and companies that will be offering immediate employment opportunities.

Pharmacy & Healthcare

CVS is hiring 10,000 healthcare professionals effective immediately! Pharmacy Technicians, Pharmacists, Pharmacy Interns, Nurses, and Retail Associates are in high demand.

Walgreens is taking on another 25,000 new healthcare associates.

Rite Aid just announced a call for an additional 5,000 workers.

Kroger is adding another 2,000 jobs. Each company has updated its recruiting and online application process to get qualified candidates hired quicker. Job seekers who decide to pursue these jobs can expect to see more full-time, part-time, and seasonal employment opportunities with comprehensive benefits and competitive starting salaries.

Warehouse & Logistics

Three of the largest logistics companies, UPS, FedEx, and DHL routinely hire thousand of extra employees every year around the holidays. These companies will be adding even more workers next year to meet the demand of getting vaccines to people safely with the added stress of ensuring the vaccines are delivered promptly and within the ultra-low temperatures standards. Package Handlers, Warehouse Associates, Delivery Drivers, Delivery Driver Contractors, Drivers Helpers, and Administrative workers are all getting the call for hiring opportunities. Flexible scheduling, education assistance, regular pay increases are just some of the few perks and benefits new employees can expect when pursuing these jobs.

Work From Home (Customer Service)

National healthcare organizations, insurance companies, and local healthcare providers will be expecting heavy customer call volumes and looking for customer-centric, empathetic, and friendly candidates to take on remote information provider roles. BroadPath, MCI, Sykes, and Alorica already have various customer service job postings available on their career websites. No college degree necessary, 1-3 years of related customer service experience, and strong communication skills are common job requirements for these roles. These jobs are also listed as 100% remote with employee benefits and perks for eligible candidates.

All job seekers are encouraged to apply!

Interested candidates are welcome to use the company links to search for local job listings and explore more job details and application information.

I’m about to graduate Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama this spring and I still haven’t been able to find a job. I’m projected to graduate Summa Cum Laude with a double major business degree in data analytics and marketing. I don’t know exactly what I want to do yet (anything that pays well right now) but so far I haven’t even gotten calls back from any of the 30+ applications I’ve submitted (mostly consulting and in-house marketing/date analysis). Am I just targeting the wrong companies or what? We have no career development office at my school so it’s been a struggle to find anything at all. What might you suggest to improve my odds?
