A new year has begun with the idea that 2021 will be much better than 2020 given everything we endured last year, both personally and professionally, due to COVID-19.
So many industries had to deal with businesses within them collapsing, and thousands of employees being laid off or furloughed due to the problems presented by the pandemic. But stay tuned, folks, because good things are on the horizon for some, if not many, prospective employees. 
Recruiters cannot wait to get the ball rolling on hiring people for necessary jobs this year. Things haven’t rebounded just yet compared to where we were at the beginning of COVID, but there appear to be some industries that are reversing the atmosphere they had to suffer through over the past several months. And the pay that they are offering for a myriad of positions available is quite appetizing to the eye. 
If you happen to be someone recruiters-will-throw-your-resume-in-the-trash-after-a-few-seconds">who is out of work or looking for a fresh start, then these eight jobs are ones to look out for from a recruiter’s POV. They are desirable, well-paying and could lead to something much bigger for you as your own personal career ladder continues to grow.
