Desperate for jobs

Careers Comments (2)

It’s not surprise that our economy is not at its best. It’s also no surprise that because of it, many people have changed their careers. Maybe you’re even thinking about doing it.

Many people throughout the country are desperate for jobs and are going back to school to pursue something else. This isn’t surprising. What is surprising are the top five fields that people are switching to. According to the New York Times these are: not-for-profits, information technology, nursing, teaching and real estate.

There really are only two that make much sense. Information technology and nursing seem like logical choices but the rest of them… not so much. Desperation can make people do funny things. This is an example.

With schools letting go of teachers, the real estate market in the dumps and people no longer donating to not-for profit organizations these all seem a bit strange. Still, they are the top fields that are getting new converts each week.

Maybe if everybody decides to switch into these five careers then the rest of us will actually be able to have jobs.
