Top 10 jobs for riding out the recession
I don't disagree that the careers they picked will be in high demand in the coming years, though there are a few you won't find me taking up anytime soon including "teacher". I don't feel like taking a job which may as well be subtitled miracle worker, due to "No Child Left Behind" goals and budget cuts just to get through a recession. Being an "Environmental Specialist" on the other hand sounds rather exciting; Smith, Josh Smith, Environmental Specialist!
I will be taking on another position in the fall as a college professor, furthering my ability to ride out a recession. As Money points out, being a nerd really does pay off! Though not everyone may consider it a career, I am surprised that entrepreneur didn't make the list. In tough times, new needs can be identified while cash strapped consumers are eschewing products which no longer fit their lifestyle.
