Companies That Are Always Hiring

How to Find a Job During a Recession

Many people give up during an economic recession, not knowing where to turn for help when their company declares bankruptcy or downsizes, causing them to lose their jobs. However, there are still some jobs available, the type and number dependent upon the state and city in which you live.

One way to avoid a disastrous end during a recession is never stop looking for a new job, no matter how secure your present job is or how much you like it or how old you are. Never stop looking.

Use the contacts you make to build a network of business associates and friends with whom you can share referrals. Further, after several years of referrals and contact, you can even ask your business associate friends for help and they can ask you.

The following articles provide additional information and good, productive tips that work.

Aside from all of this information, workers that are underemployed or unemployed can also benefit from information about which Industry Sectors of business and which companies are more likely to continue to hire new workers or replacement workers during an economic recession.

Jobs Increasing through 2020

The recession that became evident in 2007 - 2008 still encompassed(es) vacant job openings, even though the US experienced some downsizing and company closures. Economists feel that this fact will be true for each new recession that America should incur.

Reports from the federal government and workforce professionals across the nation in early December 2008 indicated that jobs were, and would continue to be, available in the following areas, as reported by the Associated Press:

Healthcare- With only 46,000,000 Generation X individuals in the possible labor pool, the 78 million Millennials in America will be short nurses and other practitioners, therapists, and diagnosticians they will need to help them, all the way through 2100. Generation Y (Millennials) also does not offer enough people to fill all of these healthcare positions. Long-term labor shortages are particularly urgent in the professions of Registered Nurse (RN) and Pharmacist.

Medical Equipment Repair and Maintenance Companies - This is another area in the Medical and Healthcare Industry that cannot be ignored and must continue to stay active. Therefore, workers must be hired to keep medical equipment in order. This includes hospital and medical practice equipment, personal medical equipment used by at-home patients and particularly by the wounded returning from wars such as those in Afghanistan and Iraq, and others. This also includes physical therapy equipment, vital to an aging population and to injured veterans and other clients. Millions of people need the services offered by medical equipment repair.

Biotechnology and Bioinformatics Organizations - Related to the Medical Industry and to the 1) Security and 2) Information Technology Industries, these two types of companies serve Physicians, Dentists, and Veterinarians as well as others, including government operations. They supply specialized medical equipment and provide the capabilities for storing large amounts of biological data. Medical professionals in isolated and under-served areas around the nation can earn large, secure incomes.

Job Growth During Recessions

The recession that occurred from 2008 to 2010 still encompassed(es) vacant job openings, even though the US experienced some downsizing and company closures. Economists feel that this fact will be true for each new recession that America should incur. The State of Texas, for example, continued to grow new jobs and seemed almost untouched by the Great Recession, except in a very few cities. Some other states were also fortunate in this way, often because of solid plans to inspire new growth long term. .

Reports from the federal government and workforce professionals across the nation in early December 2008 indicated that jobs were, and would continue to be, available in the following areas, as reported by the Associated Press:

Healthcare - With only 46,000,000 Generation X individuals in the possible labor pool, the 78,000,000 Millennials in America will be short of nurses and other practitioners, therapists, and diagnosticians they will need in order to help them, all the way through 2100.

The Boom Boom Generation will be living longer as well, placing demands on healthcare systems and causing burdens through retirements from healthcare professions among their own age cohort.

Long-term labor shortages are particularly urgent in the professions of Registered Nurse (RN) and Pharmacist. In addition, many RNs are becoming Nurse Practitioners, because clients ar seeing them for quicker and less expensive care than offered by most physicians.

Other Industry Sectors that Are Hiring

Trucking Industry and Railroads - Transportation, especially freight for moving goods.

Natural Gas Production and Transport- Active in several areas around the country, the Alaskan pipeline project set to begin in January 2009 is an example of a multi-million dollar jobs and energy program.

Federal Reserve Bank- This seems counter-intuitive, given the mortgage crisis and the government financial bailouts, but the central bank (federal) has continued to hire. Company - The US Federal Government.

Engineering - Computer Engineers and Engineers in all areas of sustainability are being hired and will continue to be hired through at least 2020. Major firms needing engineers and engineering techs include:

  • Microsoft Corp.,
  • Cisco Systems Inc.
  • International Business Machines Corp. [IBM]

The John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University hosted a conference for these three major players, along with other large firms.

The most outstanding news from this conference was that the largest portion of these employers reported that they laid off too many people during the last recession and could not accomplish their work. They also reported that they need to continue hiring during a recession, because since the economy cycles and will certainly recover, the corporations will require more workers to keep up with increasing demand.

Accountants and Auditors- Many accountants in the US state that there is always a need for accounting personnel, no matter the economic health of the country. Several states in the union have reported to the Bureau of Labor Statistics that Auditors and Accountants are among their Top 10 or Top 20 highest demand occupation projections through 2016 or 2018. In addition to this, federal, state, county, and city governments require these types of services and often do not have enough workers. The US Census requires workers continually.

In 2008, a recruitment campaign began for workers for the 2010 US Census. The same will occur in 2018 for Census2020.

Census takers and other accounting/auditing positions will employ workers for at least a year. Elements of the 2010 Census will be analyzed all the way through to the 2020 US Census, requiring additional workers. Company - The US Federal Government and local governments.

The website Inc.com of Inc. Magazine reports that Sales Persons and Software Developing Engineers are particularly likely to be hired, even in a recession.

Additional news is that the Aerospace Industry began to expand quickly in the early 2010s, requiring more workers in IT, Engineering, even Healthcare.

US Census2020 and Beyond

The US Census Bureau works all year long and records census numbers more often than only in the years ending in the number "0", like 1990, 2000, 2010, 2020, 2020, 2030, etc. New workers are needed often, but not as heavily as in the big nationwide census years once per decade. Once recorded, the census data is analyzed for years afterward as well, requiring additional workers.

In 2000, I helped recruit employees for the US Census 2000. In the US Census 2010 , America will have accumulated over 50,000,000 more residents; therefore. even more Census Takers and related employees will be needed this time around. These jobs will provide transitional employment for many workers that were laid off in 2007-2008.

The US Census is a major 10-year counting and analysis project that takes place across the United States. It requires many employees. In 2020, it will require an even greater number than it did form 2010..

This projects counts everyone that lives in the US in all parts of every one of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and all the Island Areas associated with the USA. Again, it includes every single person that lives in the United States - all ages, races, ethnic groups, citizens, and even non-citizens. They will all be counted. After that the information will be compiled, data-entered, analyzed, and published over the following 10 years.

WHEN TO APPLY FOR A CENSUS JOB

  • Autumn of 2018 - Recruitment of employees begins for local work. Information is available in brochures at your local library.
  • Spring 2019 - Census workers door-to-door to update addresses nationwide. Some will have already quit and will need to be replaced.
  • Autumn 2019 - Recruitment starts begins for census takers for 2010.
  • January – March 2020 - Census questionnaires are mailed or delivered.
  • April 1, 2020 - The official Census Day.
  • April – July 2020 - Census takers go to all households that did not mail back a completed. Again, some workers will have already quit and will need to be replaced.

Economy and Employment Outlook Differ by State

Different types of jobs are available by state and metro area. For example, alternative energy jobs offer more openings in Wyoming, New Mexico, Alaska, and other states than in the rest of the union. In areas where there are University Consortia (groups of schools that cooperate), these groups usually have connections to large employers that offer jobs in specific areas. Look for these consortia in some of my employment reviews of states and cities.

In order to locate job openings in various regions around the USA, visit these example links and follow subsequent URLS for individual states and cities:

In addition, search Hub Pages for "Top Jobs in (name of state or city)." If you donl't find what you need, request a Hub about your city and its employment outlook through the HubPages Questions and Answers feature.

Excellent information Patty. I can still remember all the stories my Father told about his life during the great Depression. He said that when times got tough, he got tougher. When a job wasn't available he created a job. One idea he came up with was putting manure in bags and selling them to people in the city who had small gardens. Little did he know that someone would turn the idea in to a major business. The one lesson I learned from Dad is that there is always work available if you look in the right place. The information you have provided here is an excellent source for those who need work, again, great job.

Thanks for the comments - even when things get discouraging, we have to keep on going and finding or creating work and income. Your Dad was certainly correct.

Good info, my mom actually did the census thing back in 2000, as recession proof as the healthcare industry seems, i was shocked to find out that even nurses especially newly grads are having trouble finding work since hospitals are in debt, and when folks are laid off, the health insurace dsappears, but once the economy gets back on track it should be better for nurses. I actually did a report on this for work, since as a Filipino that's what parents are always pushing their kids to do.

Hospitals are still seeing individuals and families that are covered by Medicaid, Healthy Children govt sponsored coverage, Workers Compensation, SSI/SSDI and private insurance.

Some hospitals in Ohio and other states are offering bonuses for local nurses to join the staff and even to move into the state to work. Nurses and other healthcare professionals must be prepared to move, even temporarily through Travel Nursing that PAYS their rent for them, to another location if necessary. Even in a shortage of nurses, the jobs are not going to come to the job seeker, but the other way around.

The tech sector seems to be taking a hit recently, but it always seems like the real job growth is in smaller companies that never make the news.

I'm going to keep a sharper eye on the economic development news in the metro areas I've reviewed on Hub Pages and look for those companies as well. Thanks for giving me a good idea, johnr54.

Also you need to consider that new jobs opportunities are being created. Banks are hiring people to clean out, clean up, and do minor repairs to the homes they are foreclosing on. You might get hired on with a company that does this but you might also make the big leap to work for yourself. What do you have to lose when you are unemployed anyway.

US has a shortage in many states of all kinds of health care professionals, including pharmacy related and even veterinary professions. Look at this Hub and use the links to any of the travel nursing firms (they also hire other professionals and see what they can do for you). http://hubpages.com/business/Travel-Nursing

Great post! Higher unemployment, worse in some industries than others. Stagnated or decreased wages. Decreased capital income to investment accounts and savings accounts. In times like this, we need to fight against recession!

Excellent Hub - great information. The regional map and links are a good tool.

I've spoken with real estate agents and title companies in our area - Raleigh, North Carolina - who say that the housing market has picked up over the last couple of months and that homeowners are hiring contractors to do pre-sale work and and post-purchase renovation.

i'm curious what will happen with health care if it becomes run by the government. I feel that the industry has tremendous growth especially with people getting older and living longer but will the jobs be worth while with all the new regulations and the death squad deciding who will live or die.


Patty Inglish, MS profile image

Patty Inglish, MS 6 years ago from North America Author

It could go either way - increase much or decrease much. I wonder if salaries will be reduced?

End of life counseling may increase the need for staff overall.

By the way, no unplugging me ever - If it occurs, I'm to stay plugged in and and they're to find MORE plugs. Won't leave until I'm ready. :)


Medical springs 6 years ago

Indeed, the medical industry will always be in need of more people. But there are niche industry like the one i'm working for ( industrial springs manufacturing ) and we provide a lot of equipment for the medical, automotive, toys, etc field.


Johnny Bridges 5 years ago

Many thanks for this post relating to the recession. Definitely one profession that's virtually recession proof is trucking. There will always be products that have to be delivered, and truck driving jobs will almost always be in demand. Just a thought...


pigbitinmad 5 years ago

I doubt healthcare will grow that much if nobody has any money to pay for it. But of course that old Bogeyman Socialism will prevent any kind of a non-profit solution to the problem. By the time I am retired, i will have nothing left and may as well just die.
