Software engineering industry seemed comparatively least affected.
Pros of being in software industry was to be able to work remotely and keeping safe.
I was able to work as well as take care of my kids, and keep a proper work-life balance. Though it was difficult, it was POSSIBLE.
If you want to look beyond this, though, the disruption can also create opportunities. The pandemic exposed weaknesses in supply chain management, for example. People who can solve those problems in advance of the next disaster will be well placed to succeed. So, if you are innovation-minded, consider looking at the cracks in the infrastructure that the pandemic has exposed.

The pandemic situation has definitely hurt the economy and of course the corporate sector. But looking at the brighter side of things is very important for all of us to keep moving forward. This situation has forced us to look at how we normally work , with a new perspective which we wouldn't do otherwise. Remote work has expanded rapidly and the companies see the importance of collaboration remotely and welcome the change instead of following the book of rules. This step is important for all considering how rapidly things are changing around us! People are learning to balance their personal life with their work which is quite easy to forget but very important..So many of us get carried off with tight work schedules and do-not give enough time for our families. Corona virus has definitely taught the importance of work life balance.
Its quite unfortunate that so many people have lost livelihood but I am sure we all will bounce back with more conviction and determination. We have come across so many challenges previously and we succeeded in them. We will definitely cross over this pandemic storm like we previously did..
Where comes to opportunities for students, there is always a need for employees to run the companies, without which the economy would-not exist. So learn what interests you and feel passionate working on! NEVER GIVEUP! You will definitely attain your goals..Good luck!
