There are vacancies on the “Invisible Market”

The idea that the electronic market is maintained without labor is a myth.
Many people believe that because they do not need to look for a seller when shopping online, there are no workers in this activity, but according to Bruna Bozano, a digital business expert, “the mechanism of e-commerce is as complex as it can be and there is a lot of work. the product reached the consumer. There are thousands of people working 24 hours a day in countless companies, preparing goods for shipment, serving customers, buying and selling, among dozens of other activities.”

E-commerce is on the rise, and the process of gaining market share has been accelerated by the pandemic.

“The Global Payments Report 2022”, which collects research on the electronic market in the world, predicts that by 2025 global e-commerce should grow by 55%.
In August 2022, the Association of Electronic Freight Payment Administrators published the article “The rise of e-commerce will heat up the logistics warehouse sector in 2022 and create new jobs”, which provides data on the physical expansion of the sector.

Requests for rental warehouses to install e-commerce increased by 384% in the period from April to June compared to 2019 before the pandemic.

When a consumer goes to a home goods website and makes a purchase or selects a computer after reading several articles trying to find the best value laptop for their use, several people are working, on a 24-hour scale, so that the product reaches the customer efficiently.

This agility in warehouses means that in a short time the consumer can already follow the path of the goods through “Correios Rastreamento”. Workers in the freight sector also benefit.

Research published in August 2022 on the website of the National Transport Confederation entitled “The labor market in transport segments is progressing in 2022”, points out that the transport sector employed 18,420 more workers in the first half of the year than in the same period in 2022. 2021.

The data is taken from Caged. Despite the fact that e-commerce has heated up the sector, data on city and road passenger transport are also included in the research.
