There has been a 25 percent increase in job openings in the technology and e-commerce industries over the past two years, while travel-related industries have seen a decline in vacancies of about 30 percent, a representative from job bank yes123 said yesterday.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there appears to have been a shift in the jobs available for recent graduates, the job bank said.
People born after the late 1990s could have an advantage when looking for opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields such as artificial intelligence, cloud services and big data, while people with liberal arts degrees could consider opportunities in digital marketing, Web editing, the mobile payment sector and technology law, it said.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, only the technology industry, as well as the stay-at-home economy and industries related to digital transformation, have been more welcoming of recent graduates over the past two years, yes123 assistant manager Yang Tsung-pin (楊宗斌) said.
On the other hand, the hospitality, tourism, hotel and aviation industries have had a relatively tough time, he said.
