JobStreet PH reveals top 10 jobs available for fresh grads amid pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic is creating a huge impact on the country’s job market. Due to the ongoing lockdown (which as of this writing has lasted more than two months), numerous employers are closing shops, streamlining operations, or letting go of some staff.

“The pandemic has greatly impacted businesses and the workforce on a global scale,” said Ramesh Rajandran, Chief Marketing Officer of SEEK Asia, the parent company of job portal JobStreet.com. “More than ever, JobStreet strengthens its commitment to rebuild businesses, careers, and people’s lives.”

This is logically a very challenging time for fresh graduates, who are aiming to look for and land their first jobs. Surprisingly, many companies are still actively recruiting personnel, including fresh grads, to join their teams.

JobStreet Philippines has listed the Top 10 jobs for fresh graduates, based on the postings available on its website during the quarantine period.
