Time for a Change?

Accounting and financial professionals remain fairly optimistic about their jobs – even if Deloitte's recent lay offs made some news and some major tanking is going on in the investment sector. If your industry's struggling, this might be a good time to switch sectors, suggests CFO magazine, especially if you're a senior manager:
…the health-care and energy sectors have wide open-doors for people seeking career changes.

The health-care sector has added 368,000 jobs this year, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The aging of baby boomers has raised the demand for health-care workers, and health-care organizations need more accountants as well to keep track of the new business.

And the energy job market is going strong because of the boom in natural gas production and increased investments in alternative energy.
