According to an article in Forbes entitled "Job Security is the New Black" Laurence Shatkin, author of Top 150 Best Recession Proof Jobs, the smart money is on building your own profile to help safeguard you during an economic downturn. If you have read my book "Beyond the Boys' Club", you will know it's a mantra indeed very close to my hear. Based on his research with the US Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) he also recommends certain industries for the workforce of tomorrow. It's a very insightful list and includes environmental science and sustainability and geothermal technology (because of climate change) accountancy and auditing (due to fast changing financial regulations) and social media and technology. Sounds like a good book for future-planning your way to greater job security.
