Hey Rufus,

You're right the pandemic has changed a lot of things. Fresh graduates have different priorities in comparison to pre-pandemic times.  With the 4th industrial revolution and web3 converging we do see a growing interest in IT, data sciences, engineering etc. Banking and finance is also another eye-catching industry for fresh graduates as it has stood strong during the pandemic. We also see a transition in sales and market that has picked up steam through online platforms. Digital marketing, e-commerce and entrepreneurship are now hot industries for young graduates. Healthcare and pharmacy have also seen an uptake in interest as well. Mental health (psychology/psychiatric) is also an important industry that has attracted more attention from the younger generation.
