If you are a cautious person and like to play it safe, then any of the below jobs will suit you very well. These jobs are always in demand regardless of the economic situation. Even though they are easy to find and always needed even in recession periods, the competition is relatively high, so nothing is perfect.
People will always need to learn so education remains as rich as always a field for jobs. These include but not limited to classroom teachers, nursery teachers, assistant teachers, private tutors, curriculum developers, education consultants, and college professors.
As new diseases and viruses continue to emerge, demand for healthcare professionals continues to grow. These include but not limited to nurses, lab technicians, pharmacists, doctors, dieticians, nutritionists, medical transcriptionists, and dental assistants.

Because these jobs are considered as crafts and rarely require a degree, there is a huge shortage in them.
