Companies Hiring During Covid-19
Despite school closures affecting jobs like substitute teaching, there’s a variety of industries hiring during this pandemic. Consider taking a job temporarily at one of these employers. Here’s where to look:
1) Grocery stores and delivery services
Grocery stores are in need of help! Major chains such as Kroger, Meijer, Sprouts, Whole Foods and Safeway are hiring in-store shelf stockers and delivery staff; same goes for for regional chains such as Raley’s. Grocery delivery services and apps such as Grubhub and Instacart are also hiring.
2) Shipping and delivery companies
Amazon is hiring 100,000 workers, mostly for fulfillment and delivery, and some UPS hubs are hiring as well, although—fair warning—both companies are facing criticism over employee safety. Some couriers are also hiring.
3) Remote teaching and communication companies
An online school, Outschool is hiring thousands of teachers to meet demand of distance learning. Teachers can join and get paid to teach online. Other remote companies in communication are in demand too. Zoom is hiring, as are Slack and Microsoft Teams. You can also search Angelist for remote jobs.
4) Working families/Childcare
5) Learn & skill up
There is no shame in a paying job of any kind, especially during a pandemic. And remember this is an excellent time to skill up. Want to learn to code? Or take a crack at the GRE? Or pick up an online credential? ‘Tis the season. Get free learning and online courses from Alison, Coursera, EdX, Future Learn, and Canvas.
