One job that is getting lots of new applicants.
However if you watch you will find that even this industry is hurting.
This isn’t the only one. I have a very stable job as a Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator. It isn’t glamorous for sure, but it pays the bills. I’ve always said we’re like morticians, because everyone has to eat, defecate and die.
The small town I work for in the pacific northwest normally only gets a handful, maybe 5, applications when we hire in our department. Most people don’t want to do what we do. We had two positions come open recently despite the city’s hiring freeze and received 36 apps for the entry level and 14 for the mgmt job. Some of the applicants were from as far away as the east coast and Mexico. It appears more of us are willing to do "anything".
