10 U.S. Jobs for the Recession


  • Accountant
  • Entrepreneur
  • Police Officer
  • Network and Computer Systems
  • Nurse
  • Nutritionist
  • Physical Therapist
  • Teacher
  • Mathematician
  • Government Manager
  • Interesting list by Time.com – as they say: “When it comes to what makes us happy at work, job-satisfaction surveys have been showing for years that the size of our paycheck is losing ground to intangibles like autonomy, mobility, low stress, flexible hours, job security, health coverage, paid time off and other benefits. Does pay matter?

    Workers who are elated to simply have a job aren’t squawking about money, and according to a Randstad survey, they now name job security and benefits among the top factors in their happiness. Competitive pay is moving down the scale. Another expediter is demographics. The massive boomer generation is entering its retirement years undersaved and in need of continued employment. Yet boomers are determined to scale back hours and stress, and some at least are happy to trade a big salary for work with meaning and which allows for a better work/life balance, so long as the bills still get paid.”
