You're right that teaching jobs are harder to come by and less secure than they used to be. And some have lower starting salaries. But most jobs are like that these days. But a big wave of Boomers is starting to retire--there should be more openings soonish. Unless we move to a mostly distance-learning model...

For those with steady hands, good coordination, good memories and attention to detail, and preferably a warm bedside/chair-side/machine-side manner, health care professions are excellent choices. But many would fail based on one or more of those requirements.

Sitting alone in my cubicle being partly technical and mostly creative worked well for me. But I think high tech is using fewer writers and editors these days--pity.

What careers do you recommend, Ray? I've noticed that at my husband;s former employer (public college), enrollment in Computer Science, after dropping like a stone during the tech wreck of 2000-2002, is now higher than ever.
