It may be a little late to get in on this but I got two words for ya-- Forensic Accounting.

Someone is eventually going to have to find out how bad the balance sheets of all these companies really are.

Yes, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, or Physical Therapy would be the way to go. These will be in high demand especially in retirement states and communities.

Any profession/career you choose will succeed and prosper as long as you can speak Chinese while doing it.

The new Super power and economic juggernaut will be the Chinese.

Being able to speak multiple languages is the fast track to success.

nursing. get an RN. people will always be sick, and RN's will always find employment (that is, until the market is saturated, which won't likely happen for a LOOONG time give the current shortfalls and aging Baby Boomers).

I would suggest the Undertaker business. The money is great if you own the establishment, and there will always be ' customers '

From a personal standpoint...
I have found great opportunities in the TV/film entertainment industry.

No matter how bad the economy; people will always go to the movies for the excape from their boring, predictable, lives.

Movies sell Dreams

People always say this and I find it interesting.

A year ago, if you went to some off the wall "tech" school for 2 years and got an associates in Nursing you basically where given a job, a nice sign on bonus and a nice paycheck.

However.. since then, hospitals have been on hiring freezes, and more often then ever "associate" nurses are being turned away for four-year nurses (thank god, I don't want a Community College Dropout taking care of me!)

It's NOT entirely recession proof because the "education industry" has worked to saturate the market with quasi-acceptable nurses!

But if you DO go into Nursing, make sure it's a Bachelors and nothing less, just this past summer I watched my girl friend and all her college friends fight over the same jobs.

You beat me too it. Yup, Mortuary Science is recession proof, not however, depression proof. People are going to continue to need the services of people in my proffession regardless of the economy. It's just that with a spiraling down of social structure, grieving will be on a much larger scale. A deceased body will become nothing but a health hazard and unfortunately large scale crematoriums will take over as a governmental form of disposition of a deceased.
