Major U.S. Employers Almanac From Plunkett Research 2021

October 8, 2020

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. announces an important market research and competitive analysis report on trends affecting job seekers, Major U.S. Employers Almanac, 2021 edition.

The Coronavirus epidemic of 2020 altered the employment landscape dramatically.  Large numbers of outstanding companies were forced to lay off employees due to both a rapid decline in revenues and uncertainty about the future.  Hardest hit were the entertainment, retail and travel sectors. At the same time, some sectors enjoyed soaring growth. Supermarkets and food-delivery services boomed.  Cloud computing firms, cybersecurity companies and digital payments firms, such as Square and PayPal, were also dramatically boosted. Home sales soared as well as a massive jump in business at mortgage companies as homeowners sought to refinance their loans.  Job seekers who want good positions with good pay must be extremely well prepared for the process of seeking a job. Americans who find themselves in the market for a job will need to understand the changes surging through the economy in order to determine which companies to pursue and which to avoid.
