Naturally, this category has to be at the top of the list. Healthcare workers heavily guard the frontline of this pandemic. These masked and gloved superheroes are preventing the virus from destroying our world completely.

However, even though healthcare professionals are in action in multitudes, there remains an increasing demand for more workers. The pandemic has brought about an “all hands on deck” kind of situation in which the world needs as much help as possible.

In fact, COVID-19 has forced retired nurses and doctors out of retirement as well. They are now actively working to contribute their expertise to fighting the pandemic as much as possible. Top companies currently hiring healthcare workers include HCA Healthcare, Anthem, Inc., and Home Instead Senior Care.

A job in this sector does not require a broad array of skills. In fact, the only skill you would require is driving. For the most part, it consists of delivering items to customers. With people being confined to their house during the lockdown, the demand for having grocery and retail items delivered to doorsteps has increased substantially. On top of that, restaurants now require a larger troop of food delivery persons as people aren’t dining in-house anymore.

Furthermore, healthcare workers also require quick deliveries of critical medical gear for their hospitals. The top companies hiring personnel for this job position are Amazon, Shipt, Bolt Express, and CRST International.

Due to the social distancing initiative and the lockdown orders being imposed in many countries worldwide, people have been loading up on grocery items and everyday essentials. This has resulted in an increasing demand for retail workers.

To meet the needs of the multitudes of people visiting the store daily, supermarkets and grocery stores have been hiring retail workers by the dozen. The most common roles at these stores include customer service representative, cashier, and warehouse personnel. Top companies hiring retail associates currently are Home Depot, Dollar General, and Aldi.
