5 Healthcare Specialties In High Demand


The healthcare sector added 46,000 jobs last month, helping to bring the overall unemployment rate down to 6.2%, a sharp decline from the 14.7% it grew to when the pandemic began and more than 23 million Americans were out of work.

The healthcare industry, as a whole, has fared better than most during the pandemic, at least in terms of employment, due to the virus itself placing even further demand on a typically booming industry.
