Andrew Covington has risen to prominence in the attorney world as well as the entertainment business. In a recent interview, he spoke to the skills it takes to succeed in these fields and how he has been able to build a large clientele base. His firm is split into two groups: Covington Law, PLLC, which serves clients ranging from fashion, art, comedy, music, and film among others, and The Cavali Group, LLC, which provides services for recording artists.
Andrew’s success has come largely in part from his life experience that allowed his clients to relate on a personal level. He also has been involved in the music industry, thus giving him knowledge of the ups and downs one can face. When asked what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, he relates, “Financial literacy, ambition, fearlessness, and perseverance.”
He advises young entrepreneurs to remember: “’Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.’ – Winston Churchill.” Andrew has learned firsthand that failure can be the greatest educator. Looking on his career so far, he claims, “My advancement in the professional world was challenging due to racial micro-aggressions in the professional world. There weren’t many people willing to guide me on my journey of starting my own practice. This is what gave me a strong sense of philanthropy and public service.”

Warehouse Jobs Booming Due to Online Sales
Amidst a surge in e-commerce sales, warehouse operators, such as FedEx and Amazon, are scrambling to hire workers across the United States. As the labor market has yet to fully recover from the effects of the pandemic, this could prove to be a saving grace for many who have struggled to find work in recent months. Overall employment is still down in the U.S; almost 11 million are still seeking employment since the beginning of quarantine. However, employment in the warehousing and storage sector is actually higher than pre-Coronavirus levels. As the holiday season approaches, these numbers will only continue to go up; a positive signal of the rebounding U.S economy.
Brick-and-mortar retailers have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, having to furlough or release hundreds of thousands of workers since early March. And with the economic downturn, there were not too many job positions opening up. Now, warehouse businesses that order, pack, and ship products are in a hiring frenzy as online sales are projected to reach $196 billion in the period from November to January. Online and physical stores alike experience increased activity during the holiday season, but with consumers avoiding brick-and-mortar locations because of the virus, more and more shoppers are relying on Amazon, FedEx, and UPS to deliver their products.
Typically, there is a temporary hiring phase for these businesses during the holidays to keep up with demand. However, many experts believe the massive shift towards online purchasing will be somewhat permanent. Already, many of the major players in the shipping and storage industry are planning for an avalanche of orders this holiday season, so more and more temporary hires are converting to full-time positions. UPS has added over 100,000-holiday workers on top of the tens of thousands it hired earlier in the year. Amazon plans on hiring more than 100,000 seasonal workers in addition to 1,000 new warehouses across the country. Also FedEx is seeking 75,000 temporary employees, a 27% increase from its 2019 seasonal hiring.
To prepare for the expected holiday boom, e-commerce businesses have begun an early hiring process. Up through August alone, there were almost six times as many job postings for seasonal positions on the job platform Wonolo. Coincidently, wages have also jumped nearly 16% to $14.18 an hour. Trucking companies are also expected to look for early hires before the holiday season. Many truck drivers have left their jobs due to the virus and retirement, and the transportation industry has struggled to fill the demand for drivers. The average starting wage for drivers at UPS is expected to go up to $30 an hour, but as the market becomes more competitive, that wage may increase even more.
The pandemic still has a grip on brick-and-mortar stores. What used to be quick and easy trips to the store are now complicated and stressful as masks are required and consumers are wary of contracting the virus. With the excess demand shifted to e-commerce, storage and shipping companies need all the extra help they can get to fulfill orders before the holidays are over. Although overall employment is still way below pre-virus levels, many Americans are finally finding employment again.
