in the history of the postal service no one has ever been laid off. mail carriers have be given expanded routes, or reassigned to another post office job, but never laid off. this was just on the radio here the other day as an example of a recession proof job.

The only one I got wrong was the one I was sure I got right (#3). My first job was as an administrative assistant, and I lost it after four months.

i got 3 out of 4! haha i got it wrong for #2, but i still think if there's an economic downturn, demands for softwares will decrease too! (even more than for a mail carrier..) but oh well.. who knows :D

Wow, I never would've guessed mail carrier. I figure mail goes out regardless of economic times.
