With the current economy causing many people to consider a job transition, teaching positions are more popular than ever. "Education is one of a handful of sectors that has actually added jobs in this recession." says Cheryl Palmer, a career expert and president of Call to Career. "Even in hard times, I don't think anyone wants to scrimp on education."
Stable and considered "recession proof" by many, jobs in education can be an excellent second career for those with a bachelor's degree. "Teaching is a fallback profession for many people. When other jobs are hard to come by, many professionals start to look at teaching," explains Palmer.
