3 Industries with Job Opportunities in 2021

After a tumultuous year in the jobs sector, many job hunters will be glad to hear that the career landscape is beginning to look a little healthier in 2021. 

Whether you lost your job due to the COVID-19 pandemic or are a recent graduate who wants to pick a career with strong career prospects, here are three industries that are set to experience a jobs boom in 2021 and beyond. 

Human Resources 

After so many businesses were required to shuffle their employee structure in 2020, it makes sense that they are now looking for quality recruiters to help fill any gaps or diversify their workforce. 

This translates into a boom in the demand for qualified human resources professionals who are skilled in not only recruitment but training and onboarding processes. Businesses will also be looking for human resources personnel who can assist with employee benefits and compensation, payroll and workplace culture. 

As you can see, there are a range of job opportunities available for human resources professionals who are looking for employment – all you have to do is take your pick! If you are looking to get qualified in human resources, consider completing a diploma or short course that can give you the training you need to stand out among other candidates. National Training’s Diploma of Human Resources is a great option if you want to accelerate your study and dive into this in-demand industry! 


With our access to ‘stuff’ changed like never before, it makes sense that companies are looking for innovative thinkers who have new, creative ways to move from A to B in a COVID world. 

Logistics professionals are set to see a sharp increase in the demand for their services and expertise, as many businesses have been forced to renegotiate how they transport their products or service to align with restrictions. Analysts in particular are in high demand, as they can provide solutions to new issues that have arisen around moving products and items from one location to another without compromising public health.

While the world may have ground to a halt, the construction industry was still moving (albeit in a very restricted fashion) to ensure key infrastructure and residential projects could still be completed. 

Things may have returned to a COVID normal, but that does not mean construction has dropped off. In fact, there has been a significant increase in the need for construction workers to finish off major projects that may have been paused or forgotten due to the pandemic. 

This demand is heightened for construction project managers in particular, as there is a strong need for experienced workers to drive and deliver key projects as more people return to their pre-COVID lives. Construction project managers will likely be in demand for the next few years as the backlog of projects are cleared, so now is a great time to capitalise on your project management career. 

If you want to support your project management career with a qualification, enrol in National Training’s Diploma of Project Management today. 

For qualifications that prepare you for industry practice, you cannot look past National Training’s revamped range of single and double diplomas. Explore our course offerings today via our website.
