How’s Business?

Are we in a recession? The unemployment rate is at 5.1 percent, there were 80,000 layoffs in March, we are in a mortgage crisis and the real estate market is at an all-time low. Bear Stearns is out of business and stock portfolios have mostly broken even over the last decade. I would say we are headed for our first recession in about 16 years. A recession hits some job seekers hard because many will not have the luxury of going for their first choice. Necessity is the mother of invention, though, so there are employment sectors that will probably remain strong. Comment

How’s Business? Recession-proof jobs

Are we in a recession? The unemployment rate was 5.1 percent with 80,000 layoffs in March. We are in a mortgage crisis and the real estate market is at an all-time low. An 800-pound gorilla like Bear Stearns is out of business and stock portfolios have mostly broken about even over the last decade. I would say we are headed for our first recession in about 16 years.
