Are There Any More Safe Careers?

Post by WPA Today on Thu Jan 17, 2013 11:15 am

Hi Everyone,

Please read my latest blog post about a recent CNN article, highlighting how even a large (very large) percentage of newly graduated, licensed nurses can't find jobs. I thought the health care field was a sure-fire thing? This is further evidence that the labor market is in a state of chaos, and we need a new WPA.

I know someone who graduated from nursing school. She was told on most of her interviews that they required someone with 2 years experience. So, I do believe, the medical field is best option right now for jobs...people are living longer, therefore we will need more nurses and doctors to take care of all these people...however, it still boils down to the prospective employers who do the hiring. They seem to be the ones that are asking the impossible when they are looking to hire.

Homecare Workers are needed too, the field is in a constant state of expansion, the problem is that the pay is low, the work is very hard for people with bad backs, and you have to string 2 or more clients together to get full-time hours. Unless you are a live-in, then your pay is cut, since room and board is considered part of your wages.

No, unless you enforce the rule of condoms with your clients.

A Safe Profession

Post by USA Citizen on Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:23 am

George Clooney is looking to expand his crew for Ocean's Fourteen and needs a good safe-cracker, which is a profession that is always in demand if you can break into it.

Wow I thought nursing was a safe career with a guaranteed job...

I am not sure what would be safe now. Even the farmers are in trouble.

Really what can anyone do for a living now?

One thing to think of if you are young, or young and healthy enough for big changes, is researching where the economies are strong, or even letting go of trying for JOBS, and thinking of other ways you can make MONEY.

The Top 10 Hardest Jobs to Fill
By John Rossheim, Monster Senior Contributing Writer
The economy is sputtering, and companies say they will make nothing but perfect-10 hires
(That means that if you are not a 10 in regard to required skills then you will not be hired.)

http://career-advice.monster.com/job-search/company-industry-research/top-10-hardest-jobs-to-fill/article.aspx

With fuel prices spiking and oil and natural gas exploration heating up, demand for petroleum engineers is rising. Offshoring notwithstanding, “engineering is going to be around for awhile,” says Melanie Holmes, a vice president at Manpower North America. “Oil companies have employees averaging in their late 40s.”

Labor advocates paint a different picture. “Employers are still not willing to pay what’s required,” says Eisenbrey. “It’s a shortage only at the rate that employers want to pay.”

The skilled trades rank high among blue-collar jobs that are hard to fill, according to the Manpower survey. Carpenters, welders, plumbers, electricians and masons are in demand, the survey says. But Eisenbrey questions the validity of these conclusions. “It doesn’t make sense that jobs for construction workers and laborers are hard to fill,” he says. “Wages are declining in most of these occupations."

Even in our digital age, stuff still needs to get from here to there, whether the trip is across the warehouse floor or around the world. That’s why jobs for laborers such as freight, stock and materials handlers are projected to increase by almost 250,000 positions from 2004 to 2014, according to the BLS. Many of these jobs require few skills but pay $12 to $15 an hour, about double the federal minimum wage, which rose to $7.25 per hour on July 24, 2009.

I don't know, you mean well, but this list is a joke to me.

Only the most well connected types get hospital admin jobs, even if you do a college program for it, masters, that is no guarantee.

HR specialists, you mean the people who weed everyone else out?. That is like sleeping with the enemy. I dare say that a lot of companies, are laying them off too, what do they need them for once everyone is laid off or fired?

Paralegal, I majored in this and got too sick to pursue it as much as I wanted, I know it is extremely hard to get a job in, why? All the unemployed LAWYERS.

Accountant, they may have a chance, MAYBE.

Kindergarten Teacher, the schools all have hiring freezes and are laying people off. I was in education and there is so much competition for jobs, its extreme. Think hundreds of candidates even for a rural district in the middle of nowhere, and that was in the early 90s, that's what I saw.

Nurses...I read elsewhere nurses can't get jobs now contrary to everyone saying go into nursing its a "safe" career! PR--no that field isn't expansive either, you need money and connections.

Financial analysis, what do they do? Tell us how fast the banks will fail? Another make work job. Funny I saw some financial analysis people buying a 1.5 million house in Boston on the TV show HouseHunters. It was from last year. Talk about clueless, don't they know the economy is going to collapse? One could tell they weren't buying it in cash worrying about their "BUDGET". If you have to have a budget, you can't afford a house that costs that much. I also thought don't those people read Zero Hedge or know the economy is going to implode? Their analysis has FAILED.

Datebase Adminstrator. Isn't IT dying? I guess if you want to be the guy who they call at 3 am because the broke down computer system isn't working #9 is the job for you.

#10 How many dental hygienists does one nation need? Most poor people aren't going to the dentist. I went 15 years without going to the dentist and found a charity program for the disabled so I could go.

JOBS THAT ARE GOOD WHEN SYSTEM FAILS.

Farming, mechanics, repair, I don't know what other ones would be good. I guess JOBS where SURVIVAL comes first and not pushing papers around. Guess medical people would still be in demand.
