States whose unemployment rates are bouncing back most

Marion Aouad, Ph.D., UCI assistant professor of economics, writes, “In a post-coronavirus job market, I believe that skills in the health care field will be in demand. This is due in part to the huge impact the coronavirus pandemic had on public health and the subsequent impact on the exit of health care professionals from the field. … Other skill sets that hold strong labor market promise are construction and trade skills. … Lastly, as big data becomes ever more commonplace, computer programming skills will remain in high demand.”
