More than 8 million jobs were lost during the last recession. Although no one is expecting the next downturn to be that severe, it pays to prepared.
While no jobs are completely sheltered from an economic fallout, there are certain industries which will be impacted less when a recession hits, including healthcare, government, education and accounting, according to Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor.
"Historically, there are industries and occupations that have been less correlated to business cycle fluctuations, like recessions, than others," he said. "If you are looking to reduce the risk of losing your job during times of a recession, we know that in the past jobs in healthcare, education and utilities have not suffered as many job losses as in other fields during a down cycle."
To be more specific, Glassdoor compiled a list of the jobs that will be safest from cuts during the next downturn.
Here are the top jobs, in no particular order, that are nearly recession proof.
