I think IT and Medical careers definitely qualify as recession proof jobs. What's your take. By the way G4P isn't included into the list!

IT is recession proof but your only as good as your last project. You have to continually be involved in the latest and greatest solutions. The amount of time keeping up with technology is never ending.  There are many IT people who cannot find work.  The problem is that technology is replacing people and instead of having an administer for a few applications or servers you now have one person expected to take care of everything.

IT sucks and I would not have went in the field if I had to do it over again.  I would go to nursing school and decide if I wanted to go further but the medical field is where it is at.  The human body never changes and instead of working with IT geeks I could fuck those nurses in a back room.

Prison Guard...lol.  They make shit pay for all the hassle.  My cousin is a guard and I saw first hand what he dealt with.  I was a "resident" there for a while.  I never acknowledged him though...that would have been a disaster for me.  Grin

It seems the supplement industry is recession proof.

Car Sales. The demand never subsides, and if you know what you're doing you can easily make $60-$80K. If you quit or get fired you're working at the next dealership the next day, or the next hour if you like. And you don't have to tell people you're a nurse.

They said recession proof, not recession lucrative.

And personally, I love working in the Tech field... It's what I do and I'm VERY VERY good at it.

Wouldn't change my career for anything.

Careers might not be recession proof, but you can take the cash they pay you and turn it into a recession proof asset... gold and silver is best.   Wink

You must have found your niche then.  I am a jack of all trade IT guy.  Network, Servers, Apps, etc..  I should have went to programming to avoid people.  I hate non IT people asking me ridiculous shit.

Plumbers and electricians still do pretty well. Plumbers especially. Folks involved in the funeral service industry usually aren't bothered by swings in the economy.

You generally have to be able to get laid to enter that career, fatso.
When you see a muscular guy walking towards you, your eyes drop to the ground don't they?

Sure. Whatever rationalizes you being a fat fuck sounds good to me.
I'd rather be a fat fuck than a little bitch. Smiley

Nobody would rather be fat. You're a fat slob because you eat shit and don't work out. No discipline=no abs=no pussy. Good job chubby. Lol
You're a little bitch that eats salads and is weak as a kitten.

I build IT solutions for the medical industry.  The really expensive, federally mandated stuff businesses have to do to get that sweet government contract.  Obamacare only means more work.   Wink
