Yes, there definitely are jobs out there, waiting for the right candidate. You just have to know where to look:
- The 150 Best Recession-Proof Jobs – article from TIME magazine
- Recession? Not for these businesses – article from BusinessWeek Online
- Census Taker for the U.S. Census Bureau
These jobs are open across the country, in every city and state. They are “temporary” until December, 2010, and they are part-time. So if you’re in school or looking for a supplement to your income, check them out. My impression from the recruiters I spoke with is that they are getting desperate to line people up, get them trained, and get started.
- Professional, administrative, and agent positions with the FBI
Here’s an earlier blog post about them. There are over 3,000 openings to be filled ASAP.
Good luck with your job search!
