Lifeboat Jobs: Week 7 – Support and Customer Service

Wed, 10/07/2020

S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce Releases Seventh Round of Lifeboat Jobs

This week’s Lifeboat Jobs are focusing on the Support and Customer Service Industry. For a brief review, our Labor Market Information (LMI) team captured and evaluated more than 45,000, non-seasonally adjusted*, job postings in South Carolina to identity the most available jobs in South Carolina.

“This week’s three Lifeboat Jobs are all expected to have industry growth in the next decade, ranging from 3-percent to more than 11-percent. There are minimal education requirements to step into these roles immediately and could allow you to maintain comparable pay to the position you were previously employed in. Minimizing an employment gap should be considered in your decision-making right now because a long gap between jobs can bring challenges when you rejoin the workforce. Ultimately these Lifeboat Jobs can offer financial stability while we weather this economic storm,” states Labor Market Information/Business Intelligence Division Director, Brian Nottingham.

To explore this week’s Lifeboat Jobs for the Support and Customer Service Industry, including potential career paths as a Customer Service Representative, Security Guards, and Secretaries and Administrative Assistants, visit here: https://dew.sc.gov/how-we-help-individuals/find-job. If you missed last week’s Lifeboat Jobs in the Information and Computer Science Industry, you can find out more information on the same link listed above. Graphics will be updated each week to highlight a new industry.

Good news! We have added one more bonus week for our Lifeboat Jobs campaign! Our final week will focus on the Construction Industry.
