There is no such thing as a recession-proof job. The closest you can ever come
to recession-proofing yourself in any job is to become valuable in a
sufficiently large and varied manner that your departure will cause the greatest
possible number of people in your company to be unhappy, and even that isn't
going to help if the company itself goes down.

I want to know if instructional technology or technical writing are
recession-proof jobs. I have searched the internet and read good things about
both fields in terms of the recession not affecting either career.
