Industries that can best withstand a recession

With many companies, both large and small, having to make budget cuts lately, which oftentimes result in layoffs, people are curious about which industries might be less prone to this type of thing happening at times when the economy is slumping. Whether you are looking for a new job, or perhaps trying to switch into a more stable industry, I’ve come across a couple of articles that I think readers of my blog will find interesting and useful, no matter what career situation you may be in currently.

HR World has compiled a list of 25 industries that are sure to still be booming despite a recession. Since these are whole industries, it could be easier to bring your current skills over to a similar position in a new industry, rather than trying to pursue a completely new career path!

HR World Article

CNN Money also has a list of ten specific jobs that are good to have in the current economic situation, along with salary stats for each and reasons why they will always be in demand. Some of them fit into the categories on the HR World list, yet some do not, showing that there are plenty of career options out there that are quite resilient to tough times.

Two traditions. One Vision. Adding to the Balance of Life.


The union of Daiichi and Sankyo brings together two pharmaceutical companies bound by a century of vision and a legacy of firsts.

Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., part of Tokyo-based Daiichi Sankyo Co., Ltd., has a corporate history as a global leader in pharmaceutical innovation since 1899.

To physicians, this means objective data, the highest ethical standards, and a desire to deliver practical human benefits with each product we develop.

To our employees, we offer an operational structure that balances creativity with discipline and individualism with collaboration.

To patients, we are committed to developing medications that put lives into balance and add to the balance of life.

We believe good science walks hand-in-hand with humanity and, as we move forward into our next century, Daiichi Sankyo seeks to build on our history of discovery with the development of new therapies in cardiovascular disease, cancer, metabolic disorders, and infection.

Shine on.

For us, innovation is born from organizational agility and a willingness to challenge the status quo at every turn. In creating opportunities for growth, we make quick, educated decisions, capitalizing on the strength of our science and an entrepreneurial spirit that led our founder to the first discoveries in biotechnology.

We harness the spirit of the individual by providing the training, tools, and technology necessary.for individual growth, while offering a solid foundation of support through teamwork and a highly collaborative work environment.
