During the global lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic, we have seen several industries that downsized their operations or closed down their office permanently. However, the pandemic became a business opportunity for some companies.

In fact, the engineering profession within mission critical industries have increased 1000% in just six months (March to September 2020)

The good news is that there are several industries who are still hiring engineers and others are expanding their base of operations in other territories.
