Is Your Job Recession-Proof?
Career company Jobfox just released a bit of good news for those of you in IT:
Your jobs are relatively safe. In fact, you may want to ask for a raise. According
, IT and software development are among the 20 professions the
company considers recession-proof.
Now, pushing aside the fact that we're not technically in a recession -- it
just feels like one -- this is good news indeed. (And here's a little hint from
the editor in chief of Redmond magazine: Our upcoming salary survey has
some more good news!)
Here's the rundown: Software development and design positions are the second-most
recession-proof career. Systems and network administration is No. 6, business
analysis related to software implementations is No. 8, database administration
is No. 14, and being a tech exec is sweet 16.
