According to CNBC, it's sales jobs and technology jobs. Do you agree, disagree, have any others to add? I know there are some hardcore job hunters here that would love to get some ideas. I have some hubs on good jobs in management consulting and sales if that helps anyone.
Employment adviser is always a recession proof job, which is my job title, and i help people who are looking for jobs, advising them on training, job searches and referring them to partner organisations.
Yes have to agree with the grave digger comment or funeral stuff in general. Also the transportation of goods, especially food. No matter how bad things get we gotta eat. We eat and we die. No getting around that.
Apparently what is also quite recession proof are those who bury pets. I think it would be an interesting study to learn why people are so attached to their pets that they are willing to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on giving their pets a burial. Or does anybody have any insights.
In just a few hours I am having to put down a beloved pet. She has been a cherished companion for seven years. She has an incurable disease and it would be cruel to make her suffer just to put off the pain I will feel losing her.
Her name is Lightning...130 pound white shephard I have had since she was 5 weeks old.
I have not spent thousands of dollars for her care, but I skipped getting my prescriptions filled trying to afford hers.
That is all the insight I have. Holly
Holly, I feel for you so much. I know what you are going through.
Have you ever seen this:
"When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart."
I know that two black pussy cats, Liquorice and Cleo, are there, waiting for me.
caregiver or babysitter jobs are also affected because ...
1. grandparents now watches over their grandchildren instead of hiring a babysitter
2. some adults who are unemployed takes care of their elderly parents instead of hiring caregivers
I read a report somewhere listing translation among recession-proof jobs. I follow a couple of translation-related forums. Many translators are reporting that they have either not been affected by the credit crunch or are getting more business that ever before. That is certainy my experience as well. I am currently having to turn down at least twice as much work as I am able to accept.
Any hands-on skill like engine repair, carpentry, pruning, sewing---you may not be able to get a 'job' job with bennies and all, but you can't be outsourced, and you'll always be able to pick up side work to feed yourself.
I'm going with a Garbage Man. I don't care who you are, everyones got garbage....
With all the baby boomer's coming of age, anything in the health field. And unfortunately the funeral business.....
Anything to do with heating your home. Gotta have it. Can't live without it. Most things having to do with children are fairly recession-proof as well, ie private schools, summer camps, daycare, etc.
actually what I am finding is high demand cosulting to large construction companies. Sounds nuts, but many very large firms are looking for ideas to augment their core business. Four months ago I was a CEO, now I am taking some of those ideas to companies as a consultant. Economic slow downs bring openness to new ideas that companies would not normally pursue.
