Tax Preparation Careers Weather Economic Downturns

Getting a career in a sure thing sounds like a great idea right about now. The economy is in turmoil and many economic indicators point to another recession. What’s more, we won’t even know there is a recession until we are deep inside of it and things start going wrong, so setting up your career to weather economic downturns is always going to be the right decision. There are certain industries and jobs that weather economic downturns particularly well – nursing and other medical jobs are always needed, and financial services jobs always continue to do well. One financial service job that is always in demand is tax preparation, and it’s something you can learn fairly easily.

The old saying goes there’s nothing certain in life except death and taxes, but even the funeral industry shifts during economic downturns and taxes are always there needing to be done. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to have a four year accounting degree to become a tax preparer – you can take a short course and become certified in under a year. The best part? You can set your own schedule and work as much or as little as you want, building a business that will weather any financial storm.
