The Most Secure and Overrated Careers of 2008

It has been a rough year for the job market, though the recession has weeded out some shining exceptions to the bad news. In a landslide vote, you chose health care as the industry with the most secure jobs in 2008. I agree it's a secure field relative to most others, and it seems that health care workers are always in demand.

As for the career you voted as most overrated, real estate agent beat advertising executive in a marginal win for the career that delivers the least in terms of expectations meeting reality. It's definitely a subjective matter, but it seems those of you who have tried these careers or know people who did, haven't exactly gotten the best impressions.
