There are a lot of industries that are poised to grow exceptionally fast in 2022. Some are in full recovery mode from the pandemic and others are thriving because of the developments related to the post-COVID economy.
This creates a unique situation—some industries are growing faster than the talent pool can manage. Companies operating in this space are desperate to hire talent.
This is an advantageous situation for professionals in these industries. They are in high demand, they have the upper hand, and they can be picky about the type of company they want to work for. Demand can also help them increase earning potential.
If you don’t work in these industries and are considering a career change, making the move to a fast-growing sector can help you take the next step in your career much quicker, especially if you have a lot of related and transferrable skills.
From an employer’s perspective, this situation is challenging. According to the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC),64% of Canadian businesses say labour shortages are limiting their growth.
