The pandemic had a strong impact on job growth, which fell by an average of 70% in the two months after emergency measures took effect due to Covid 19.
A study conducted based on an analysis of listings posted on job search websites found that the most in-demand jobs during the coronavirus crisis were as follows: Delivery Drivers, Teachers, and Marketing Professionals.
