Career Calling

Chasing Recession Proof Jobs

We all want security.  In a time of high unemployment and job insecurity, many people look for careers that will be recession proof.  Sadly, like the unicorn, such jobs do not exist. Even healthcare, which is clearly a growing field, churns jobs. My clients in this field have told stories of layoffs and reorganizations.  Several hospitals in Chicago have reorganized departments and laid off staff.  One of my clients survived a layoff.  She had to take over a co-worker’s job and her staff had to take on the duties of other laid off workers.  So much for recession proof jobs in healthcare.  Rather than seeking a security that doesn’t exist, the best career strategy is to be prepared for any challenge or opportunity.  Change happens.  Make the most of it.
