Let’s browse through few sectors and jobs that may not face recession during and after coronavirus –

Medical Field Workers

It goes without saying that anybody even minutely connected to the medical field will not face recession.

Just because the world is at a standstill does not stop other diseases from occurring and sending people right to the hospital or medical store.

Therefore, paramedics, nurses, surgeons, pharmacists, veterinarians and doctors have nothing to worry about.

Even though it is recession-proof the risk is pretty high. It could expose you to the virus on a daily basis but will definitely keep the income going.

Cybersecurity Jobs

As more and more people are using online apps to carry out almost all their work, security has become a major concern.

Jobs In News and Publishing-

With everybody on their phone as people have nothing to do, engagement of news and online blogs have shot up. People are constantly curious about the scenario and seek updates and other information which is available on news portals.

Every sector may face some short-term problems but these jobs are likely to be your safe bet. The post coronavirus world is yet to be revealed but as of now, we must focus on building our skills and topping our resumes and making ourselves recession proof.
