VARs and ISVs top ‘recession-proof’ job list

Good news for IT channel pros: Your jobs are safe in a recession.

That’s according to Jobfox, a job search website that just released its Top 20 Most Recession-Proof Professions. Sales reps were No. 1 on the list, and software designers and developers came in at No. 2. The Jobfox report jibes with what we’ve reported in the past and with what VARs, MSPs and ISVs constantly tell me: that the economic downturn hasn’t affected their businesses, and they don’t expect it will.

Jobfox came up with its list by measuring demand for different kinds of jobs from November 2007 through last week.

Rounding out the top five recession-proof jobs were nurses, accounting executives and accounting staffers. Judging by the list, if Benjamin Franklin were alive today, he’d say:

Is your organization using location intelligence software?

My company, Loqate CREATES location intelligence software. It's important to note that any Location Intelligence software is MUCH more effective if the addresses are cleansed first (with address verification software such as Loqate's batch VERIFY or real-time verification with REGISTER. Regardless whose geocoder you use, the results will be better (and thus, so will your analytics) if you cleanse the addresses first.

We use location intelligence software extensively for tracking and mapping all postal runs across Australia daily and as opportunity analysis for our retail network
