According to economists at Goldman Sachs, the U.S. is on course for an employment boom this year once pandemic restrictions ease and the economy reopens.


This new outlook predicts the unemployment rate, currently at 6.2%, will fall to 4.1% by the end of the year, per a report. The Goldman Sachs forecasters also expect participation in the jobs market to pick up, because “most workers who left the labor force still cite the pandemic as their reason, and will likely re-enter once life normalizes.”


So, you may want to get a jump on additional competition re-entering the work force. Whether you’re transitioning to civilian life from the military or a veteran seeking a career change, there are some excellent employment opportunities available to match the leadership, management, and unique skills and abilities honed throughout your military experience.


To help you get started in your job search, Indeed put together a list of 25 jobs for veterans across a variety of professions and industries, depending on your interests and specializations.
