Amid the pandemic, as many as 81 million people across Asia lost their jobs last year, a report by the International Labour Organisation revealed.
The labour experts of the United Nations estimates that by 2023 the unemployment number will hover around 200 million, women and youth workers being the worst hit.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, some professionals are losing their jobs, while several fresh graduates are unable to get themselves an opening of their choice, leading to alarming levels of unemployment. However, some are settling with the jobs that have come their way to support themselves as well as their families financially.
The coronavirus broke out during the fresh academic session of 2020, impacting the classes badly, resulting in some people securing no job at all. The second wave hit India so severely that the future of the 2021 batch remains uncertain.
However, the job landscape is not so terrible as it sounds for those looking to work for organisations abroad. With countries reopening their borders and relaxing travel restrictions, people have started applying for student visas and work visas.
