Though there is no single occupation which is completely recession proof, some professions are less affected by a recession than others. In my opinion, the following professions are going to suffer less from the current world financial recession:




 scrubs1. Healthcare: Yes as long as people keep getting sick, there will always be a need for healthcare services. For those who still have an option of deciding their careers, the medical field is a safe bet. To be more specific doctors, nurses, pharmacists and physicians are stable roles. Healthcare professionals are decently paid in most parts of the world.


2. Education: There will always be a strong need for education. Especially teacher-doris-daytoday when many unemployed individuals will try going back to school to learn new skills and flairs that can help them develop their careers. Also K-12 schools will always have a demand for teachers as the population rises. To be more precise, for schools it is best to be a Math or Science teacher and for College being an Accounting or Literature instructor will keep you away from the sack. Education industry pays well and provides with decent benefits in many parts of the world.

Public Safety: Public safety includes professions like Police, Firefighters, Army, Navy, Air force etc. These are respectable professions and will be least affected by an economic recession as a recession doesn’t force a country to cut down its expense on safety, security, law and order.
