How to Find a Recession-Proof Career


Anyone who has been laid off from a dying industry and has been to a jobs center to look for work knows where the jobs are -- health care, education, government, the defense industry, and green jobs. The problem is figuring out how to transfer your skills to a recession-proof career and land a job.

Career coach and author Jeff Cohen helps the jobless, or working people who are looking for a career change, learn how to transfer their skills to a recession-proof career in his new book, 'The Complete Idiot's Guide to Recession-Proof Careers.' Much of the 330-page book details industries and jobs that are growing, but the best parts are some of the early chapters on how to recession-proof yourself.
