The Top 25 Recession-Proof Jobs (According to

In a time when many people are considering some form of career change, in order to pursue a line of work that they feel might offer increased stability or satisfaction, we thought it would be helpful to share this recent “Top 25 Recession Proof Jobs” list that was published by leading employment website This list can be reviewed by clicking here and appears to be a well-researched resource that not only shows the current rank of various occupations, in terms of stability during recessionary times, but also includes their previous month’s ranking (a useful statistic) and the median salary level for each career path.

Among this mix, you’ll find Sales and Business Development jobs leading the charge, along with a combination of careers in accounting, technology, healthcare, and education. All in all, the occupations featured seem consistent with our own observations about the relative demand for various types of workers these days — with the one exception being the claim that Seattle is still a hotbed of activity in the “retail banking” sector. Given the recent news that has impacted Washington Mutual, we suspect this particular data point would change a bit if the survey were conducted in recent weeks…

Ultimately, too, we’d emphasize that these kinds of lists are not only just interesting curiosities, but also underscore the fact that we all still have the power to make smart strategic choices about our employment futures — and to act on the kind of data that this Jobfox list represents. While granted, certain professions (like Electrical Engineer) require a larger degree of additional schooling than most people would consider at a mid-point in their working lives, many other paths are well within the reach of people who are willing to make a short-term sacrifice in order to set their careers on course for long-term improvement. Intelligent “careering” is going to rely more and more on people thinking ahead and using this kind of data to stay relevant and employable in a changing world, so this Jobfox list is a good start for engaging in some what-if brainstorming!

  1. Just wanted to add a small tip on creating a recession proof career. It would be a good idea to plan out your career or business by considering government contracting. This is a very lucrative financial opportunity that can help you stabilize financially and increase your income flow if it is done the right way.

    If this is something that you are interested in to put an end to your financial worries, get yourself registered with the Central Contractor Registry which is a federal clearing house for vendors and small businesses too. Also identify a product or service that you can supply to the government and which the government needs in order to get a contract.

    You can win such billion dollar contracts and secure your career or business better even during this phase of recession.
