The US has been hit by an economic crisis, but its travel industry is still struggling to find a new source of jobs.
The US has more than 50 million people working in the travel industry, and a growing number of people are turning to nursing as a career, with many relying on public transportation and taxis.
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the US has experienced a 16.5% increase in nursing job openings since the beginning of 2017, compared to the same time period last year.
But with so many nursing jobs being lost, it’s not surprising that many have turned to the travel sector.
“It’s been a tough time, but you’ve got to make the right choices, but at the same I think we’ve had a good recovery from the recession,” said Alicia, who requested that her last name not be used.
In a city with one of the highest unemployment rates in the US, Alicia said it is tough to find work.
She has been unable to find good nursing positions in the city, with a large number of jobs available online.
Despite that, Alicia, 28, said she’s happy with the opportunities she has found and she hopes others will take the same route.
Many in the industry have struggled to find jobs in recent years, with vacancies at nursing homes increasing more than 400% from 2015 to 2016.
Alicia said she is looking for a position that will pay $30 per hour and include healthcare benefits, and that she’ll likely have to work from home.
There is also a shortage of nursing assistants in many states.
“[I would like] someone who can go home for a few weeks and see what I’m doing, who can help me figure out what the next step is,” Alicia said.
