Jobs will return to the economy when logistical inefficiencies are weeded out. When I look at all of the connections along the global supply chain, there exists hundreds of opportunities for intermediaries to improve delivery of a good. For example, a friend of mine moved toilet paper closer to the warehouse door to eliminate the repeated movements of the forklift. That saved Dollar General almost a million dollars. Now, the workers can be relocated or investment can be made in their human capital. I think the next job surge will be in logistic functions. These can be in packaging, visability along the supply chain, marketing, procurement, management, and transportation.
I know these careers are not taught in AP microeconomics, but I believe that microeconomics is relevant.
