How has the pandemic affected long-term projections on employment? - a thread

BLS sees a stronger decline in retail employment and traveler accommodation as well as shrinking food services employment instead of expanding.…
Transportation employment growth will likely be smaller and in some cases may decline due to teleworking rising and less people commuting to work.
Nonresidential construction employment is likely to decline with office space likely being less needed. The effects might spill over into residential construction employment as lost workers cross over into a new industry.
Employment in pharmaceutical research and other similar medical STEM areas is projected to grow faster now as the pandemic has placed a new emphasis on public health.
Computer systems and peripheral equipment (growing quickly already) is expected to grow even more to supply the equipment necessary to support teleworking.
The rise of automation and the fall of brick-and-mortar is also likely to lead to large declines in people-facing service employment like cashiers, receptionists, etc.
