Financial experts and economists have identified some of the jobs that will be in demand once the crisis is over.

Many Australians who have lost their job, been furloughed or had their wages cut during the lockdown have been encouraged to learn new skills and be on the lookout for fresh career opportunities when the economy returns to something approaching normal.

Essential service careers will be in high demand post-coronavirus, such as the police force, aged care, nursing, teaching, counsellors and food deliverers, according to University of Sydney economist Professor John Buchanan.

Financial expert Effie Zahos discussed the job growth predictions when she appeared on Channel Nine’s Today Show on Monday.

‘What I read with a lot of economists is that what happens after a crisis is we go back to basics,’ she said.

‘That’s the police force, nurses, counselling, teachers, are the ones if you want a future, that’s where to go.’

Tradies will also be in massive demand. 

‘Think about it.We are at home more. A lot aren’t buying or selling,’ Ms Zahos said.

‘We’re looking at our houses and thinking ways we can add value. Tradies were in short supply anyway and they’re coming back in favour. Big demand. The government will continue to spend in infrastructure.’

There are a wide range of free online courses for Australians to upskill so they’re prepared to return to the workforce once the crisis is over.

TAFE NSW currently has free 21 online courses to anyone over the age of 17 and lives in NSW.

The courses from a few days to several weeks in fields such as web design, pharmacy training, digital literacy and E-commerce. 

‘If you don’t have a job and you are not in school these courses are available for you to up skill,’ Ms Zahos said.

‘Instead of sitting down and watching Stan or Netflix this is a great way to get yourself ready so in the post coronavirus future you are employable.’

Federal education minister Dan Tehan’s announced on Sunday that universities will offer cut-price courses to help relieve skill shortages.

Many courses has been reduced by more than 50 per cent, and in some instances up to 74 per cent.

The online courses will run for six months in what are deemed to be ‘areas of national priority’, such as in nursing, teaching, counselling, IT and science.

The initiative will also provide people with the opportunity to re-skill or advance their careers after the economic disruption. 

Ms Zahos welcomed Sunday’s announcement to keep the struggling university sector going through the current crisis.

‘It’s a smart move to keep people in education,’ she said.

‘What the government has come out now, for the first time offered 50% off a lot of university courses.But they’re the ones that we want a national priority. 

‘So you will only find them in say nursing, counselling IT and science. 

‘I’s a case of contacting universities and seeing what courses are up.
