The Best Jobs in a Bad Economy

It's no secret that times are tough and when the economy begins to weaken, jobs become harder to secure and fewer in numbers. So what are the best jobs to have in a bad economy?

  • Sales - Anyone who makes or saves their company money can be fairly certain their job is secure.
  • Certified Public Accountant Two things in life are certain: death and taxes.
  • Teachers As the population grows, so does the need for qualified teachers in nearly all parts of the country.
  • Environmental Specialists As worldwide concern grows regarding global warming, so do positions within the environmental sector.
  • Local Truck Driving Jobs As the backbone of the economy, need for truck drivers will remain constant since they transport nearly every commodity consumed in the United States.
  • Healthcare Professionals From nurses to physician's assistants, the need for skilled healthcare professionals continues to rise. In fact, despite a poor economy, many of these professionals benefit from high salaries and secure job positions.
  • Physical/Occupational Therapists With an aging demographic, people are getting older and more frail, resulting in an increased need for therapists.
  • Energy Roughly 80% of workers in the oil industry will begin to retire over the next decade, so jobs in the oil, gas, and alternative energy will continue to grow at a steadily.
  • Security The need for security (i.e. airports and border patrol) will always be on the rise, especially given the U.S.'s stance against terror.
