What to Become to Avoid Recession?
The situation at the financial market is still unstable. During the crisis period millions of people have been recessed and some professions have become not required at all. We’ve tried to rate 10 of the most required and 10 of the least required professions.
Non-required profession in the crisis period:
Showmen. Most of big companies have refused to having big and expensive parties for their stuff, what had dramatic consequences for singers, humorists as they have lost a huge part of their orders. Producers stage less what impacts directly on the wages of actors.
Realtors. Countries are frozen waiting the real estate market to collapse. Everyone tries to postpone selling or buying their houses and apartments. Furthermore, most of agencies try to reduce the staff and to employ people for percentage deals.
Construction engineers. The biggest recess is pointed out in the building sphere. Companies have to freeze their objects, cancel the required vacancies and reduce the staff. One year ago the number of wanted construction engineers was triple to the present.
Marketing directors. The number of unemployed specialists is 25% more than the vacant working places, while at the end of 2008 45% vacancies were not covered. Moreover, every week the number of unemployed specialists is growing while not so long ago companies used to have 2-3 marketing specialists.
IT-specialists. Keeping system administrator or programmer starts to be too expensive for many companies. Now leaders try to arrange network on their own, while their secretaries modify sites and logotypes of the companies.
Headhunters. Headhunting agencies start reducing their staff, while many HR-departments in big companies are abolished totally. To put it in a nutshell, all the job market plunged into recession following the financial crisis.
PR specialists. While big companies in B.C. (before crisis) period paid a lot of attention to the image of organization, nowadays there is a total tendency of reducing publicity budgets and freezing communicative projects. So it is not the most abundant period for PR specialists, used to getting star salaries to slow down their pace.
Bank clerks. Banks may have suffered most. The population draws its deposits, it becomes more and more difficult to get a credit, refinancing rate is higher and higher. Does it make sense having so many employees?
Business-trainers. Together with the staff recessions the qualification of workers goes down too. Companies attend less to raising the level of the qualification of their workers. If it goes ahead like that, even education won’t be required as employees won’t be either.
Waiters. Not so many people can afford to go to a restaurant just to have a meal .Everyone saves money. Waiter’s vacancies are reduced for 30%.
Specialists of debt collection. The quantity has increased by 40% relatively to the 2008. Financial crisis has dragged a huge amount of non-payments.
Crisis managers. These specialists are able to determine the strategy of company’s reanimation. They are rare, and as the consequence they are well-paid. But a businessman will do everything possible not to let his enterprise die.
Alcohol sellers. Generally speaking, retail sale never has crises. Especially for alcohol, as there is a good tradition to remove any stress by alcohol.
Magicians/mediums. Sometimes crisis wins and nothing will help businessmen reanimate their business. Someone relies on his intuition, those who don’t appeal to those who can foresee their future.
Accountant. Crisis forces to save money. The minimization of tax payment is getting more actual than ever. That’s why good specialists are required.
Teacher. During this hard period a lot of us will think about changing their profession, what means getting proper education. Or at least spend time during unemployment period usefully.
Internet manager. Publicity goes away from the printed methods and becomes more popular in the global net. Companies fire marketing specialists and invite coworkers for distant collaboration.
Business estimator. After your business has collapsed, its ruins still can be useful for someone. In order to extract the maximum advantage from the bankrupt company, businessmen pay well to estimate the remains in a proper way.
Legal experts. In the period of instability the legal information is more requested than ever.
There are also other opportunities you can take advantage of like grants and federal loans. I have a friend who recently got a federal loan and funded a new business venture. He started his business in 2008 and now in 2010, he is doing better than ever. Never give up recession or not. There are always opportunities and ways to overcome recession and bad times and still make a good living.
