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!

- Discuss


The Medical field will always be on Top. it's Universal......IT is too dynamic and very unpredictable.

Funny I've never felt that problem.  Translation = Too many unskilled people like lubeyourman relative to the # of unskilled jobs available.

Not everyone is viewed as a quota like you are.  Face it, White males have it the worst these days.  I'm in favor of best person for the job.  Not, "hey lets pic the gay mulatto with downs so we can get a tax break".

I m nearing 35 and i own my house without any debts, dont worry for me, homo. Let's see how both you and I go thru that recession and let's count the points in a decade from now. I sincerely hope you own your own house lol. I know a lot of clowns like you of any age who think they rule the world at one point of their existence, full of debts, only to end pennyless with only their eyes to cry.

Haha, I was about to quote your post ubercunt before you deleted it.

A home worth "200,000" bucks eh? Did your wife buy that for you, wanker? Didn't you tell us a few months ago that you were so poor you were working in a "food plant" in the most basic of manual jobs?

You'll have to survive on the back of your wife for quite a few years, in a recession noone hires psychologists to tell their problems to, that's only possible in a boom. You're like a toy husband Smiley Useless and disposable. So much for virility, eh?

You undereducated ponce.

What are your views on chlorine vs chloramine, Hulk?  I've heard that chloramine creates a lot more nasties in its interactions with contaminants but none of them are yet on the gov's danger list?

sorry I just saw this now.

Chloramines (chlorine + ammonia) is used mainly in water treatment for disinfection from the time the water leaves the plant to the time it comes out of your tap.

yes, it creates potentially cancer causing byproducts called tri/di halomethanes.

however, it acts as a good disinfectant that remains effective if the water runs into contaminating bacteria on the way to your house. they last longer than a free chlorine residual which is desirable. Free chlorine is a better disinecfecant but it gets used up very easily

other methods of disinfection don't do this. they have no 'lasting' power.

so, yes, I tend to favour chloramine. the risks of cancer being caused by these byproducts is, from what I understand, to be virtually neglegable.

people don't get sick from properly treated water. they get sick from drinking contaminated water

Very untrue.

There aren't enough qualified people for the jobs out there.

Some bitch spending $100k on a philosophy degree from Harvard complaining there is no work for her.  NO SHIT.  Bitch should have studied something that mattered.

That's a VERY big part of it.
However, I also know plenty of people entering the market with practical education & skill sets who are having a tough time landing work; including the medical field.

I think IT as a field is recession proof... there is always a need for tech people everywhere, however some fields will certainly be outsourced to lower cost locations if that is possible.

I live in a City of a million people and the oil & gas sector is the main driver of the economy here.  When the recession hit here in early 2009 a lot of oil & gas companies had to postpone or cancel projects.  They laid off a lot of positions, Engineers, Geologists, and a lot of IT people.  To this day the oil & gas sector hasn't come back to it's former boom.  It's growing, yes.  But not like it was pre-recession.  There are plenty of IT people here still without decent paying jobs due to supply demand.  There is a need for certain amount of tech people everywhere, yes.  But that doesn't mean all of the qualified people will find work in a recession.

I am seriously thinking about driving trucks at the mines here.  Alot of females are getting jobs at the mines now and the money is awesome.  You can choose the shifts you want too.  I could work it in with my daughter...she turns 16 next year so will be more independant.

If that's what you want to do get in now, when it slows down they will lay off the last few waves of new hires...

wow..here we go again with the old "poor old white males have it the toughest" bullshit...and your implication is that minorities or the handicapped are taking jobs away from whites.,...classic racist nonsense again.....the fact is, white males are still on top but they are having a tougher time landing and keeping jobs due to the huge influx and education of WHITE WOMEN.....white women are getting the jobs that white men used to hold and then divorcing you guys because many of you guys can no longer keep up with the earning power of your wives....

sorry to have to break the truth to you guys.....let the whining begin

Thanks, Hulk.  My pop has been griping about chloramine in his town's water for awhile.  He's a clever guy but always been a little high strung and I'm keeping an eye out for a case of the old man crazies.

But there is the rub... you're saying your city doesn't have any jobs... and that's fair enough, but people can move if need be.

Go where the jobs are... That's sometimes what you have to do.
