With one of the worst financial crisis in decades currently being experienced in the United States and around the world, everyone is concerned over the lack of stability in the job market. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, over 650,000 jobs were lost in February of 2009. Shooting unemployment rates over eight percent for the first time in over 25 years. With statistics like this it is no wonder so many people are worried that their jobs will be the next to get axed. Even when the economic crisis turns around workers may find that job trends have changed and their current positions may be obsolete.

Rather than hoping things will turn around or that a job will stay in demand, prepare ahead by using the Occupational Outlook Handbook. This publication released by the United States Department of Labor's Bureau and Statistics comes out every 2 years. Ensuring workers and businesses have an updated look at how the job market is growing and changing.

The detailed guide covers service related industries such as healthcare, food preparation and serving. Farming, administrative, production, transportation, armed forces, management, sales and professional careers are also included. Job seekers can also make use of detailed job descriptions, salary details, training and educational information and requirements to understand what skills are needed to qualify for better paying jobs.

For those looking to recession proof jobs the employment projections area will be very valuable. Each addition of the Occupational Outlook Handbook covers projected job growth for the next several years.

For example, account executives can expect an increasing labor demand to offer plenty of job opportunities. However, those in print media can expect to earn less than those in television broadcasting or video industries. In addition, since account executives depend on commission for part of their income, those with only a high school diploma may struggle to earn enough to support themselves. Gaining an associates or bachelor's degree and learning a language spoken by a large consumer base will be helpful.

With the changes in the economy, prepare now to transition into one of the fastest growing occupations. Though job opportunities are growing more slowly than in past years some industries are experiencing steady or rapid demand because of the type of services they provide.

Thankfully, for those interested in joining or already involved in the sales industry, sales related occupations continue to add new jobs. By 2016, sales occupations are expected to add more than 1 million new jobs. Sales jobs will also show the diversity of the American workforce with Baby boomers (those aged 55 years or up) and minority groups becoming better represented.

One increasing need in sales is for those with an engineering or related science background to become sales engineers. These individuals use their strong technical background to help develop products and sell these products to a company's customers. Those with a background in business or economics could also find steady employment as an insurance sales agent, helping customers find the right health, life or death insurance policy.

The sales related jobs discussed here are only a few possible options. The wide variety of sales related careers means workers who look towards this career path can be sure their job is recession proof, now and in the future.
