SALT LAKE CITY — It’s “Work for us Wednesday,” and as part of our "The Rebound" initiative, we’re highlighting some of the businesses and industries that are hiring right now.

While many companies are laying off workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some are looking to add to their workforce.

Utah's Department of Workforce Services tells Fox 13 there are a number of positions open in retail at places like Walmart and Staples.

Lowes, Amazon and some fast food companies – like Papa John's and Jimmy john's – are looking for drivers.

Registered Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants are needed at the University of Utah and Acadia Healthcare.

The finance industry is also looking for help at places like Robert Half, Bank of America and Fidelity Investments.

Fidelity Investments in Utah has 200 openings in Salt Lake and American Fork – from financial consultants to customer service reps.

"These roles are all posted on our website which people can find at jobs.fidelity.com," said Mark Barlow with Fidelity. "We also have a webinar Thursday at noon where people can register on the job site. It is meant to introduce people to all of the roles here in the Utah region and different careers people can develop at Fidelity investments.”
