About the Study
This study aims to determine workers' and jobseekers’ priorities and attitudes following a global pandemic that has disrupted all work environments. In order to do so, we’ve looked into the career related motivators and personality traits, as well as the career interests of CareerHunter test-takers between August 2020 and August 2021.
In a nutshell, our findings suggest that recent global events, along with cultural and technological shifts, influence career-related decisions by making people more independent and individualistic, as well as less calm and decisive. Additionally, creative and intuitive jobs which can now be performed online remain incredibly popular, while those that involve
manual labour, and jobs likely to be significantly altered due to automation, are have a worryingly low level of interest.
