Despite all the layoffs, there's work to be had in the world of business and finance.

With more regulation and oversight in the post-Enron era, the demand for accountants continues to increase, says Lynne Sarikas, director of the university's MBA Career Center.
Many companies have slashed their marketing budgets, and are looking to hire people who know how to market a product and still gain visibility with a smaller budget.
The list of companies filing for bankruptcy protection this year is long—Washington Mutual, Lehman Brothers and Tribune Co., to name a few—and as bankruptcies increase, so will the number of jobs to handle them.
With more scrutiny on budgets, more analysts will be needed to prepare company budgets.
When times get tough, many head back to school. A recent survey found that 77 percent of full-time MBA programs reported an increase in applications in 2008, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council. With more people heading to school, the demand for business professors is likely to increase, too.
The market’s recent downturn has left many 401(k)s and retirement accounts with huge losses. “A lot of people realized that they needed help when the market began acting erratically,” says Sarikas, explaining the increased demand for financial advisors.
Such professionals are in demand, as companies need people who can analyze businesses and offer sound financial advice.
Analysts who can determine the need of customers and help programmers understand those needs are also in high demand.
As businesses cut costs, there’s more demand on companies to hire procurement and contracting analysts to review and negotiate the purchase of supplies, equipment and services.
How to transport and store materials has a huge impact on a company’s bottom line, says Sarikas, which is why there is high demand to hire supply chain analysts to reduce costs.
