Where’s healthcare? I read this and felt pretty good about my current profession.
I had completely forgotten about healthcare as an option … that’s clearly one of those enduring businesses that will exist no matter what. It’s job security could always be a challenge though based on high cost of employing doctors and nurses versus the potential of many uninsured folks not being able to get care. Or whether a government health program would shake the system up so badly that it ceases to be as effective or sends people away from the profession.
I think that health workers will fit into the other categories because the trend is for doctors and nurses to become self-employed private contractors. This will be good for individuals who are entrepreneurial and business orientated, but bad for those who would prefer to concentrate on their professional duties while being employees or public servants.
This arrangement should work well for administrators and accountants, but I doubt that it will be so good for patients.
Not sure if I agree with you when you say that doctors and nurses will be shifting toward self-employed private contractors. You’re almost guaranteed to always have hospitals, and it takes a large slew of healthcare professionals to make that business run. Personally I love working in the hospital setting, and to be an advanced practice nurse working as a private contractor, just doesn’t appeal to me at all.
I did not mean that the doctors and nurses would choose to work that way, just that this is the trend in public sector professional jobs.

I must partially disagree. I know that my 3 sisters (R. Nurses in MN and PA) tell me that the exact opposite is happening (it may be a local phenomena, but I don’t think so).
They are leaving private business or moving to large groups/hospitals because:
Has nothing to do ith the poll, but I thought I’d mention it.
As for the actual poll, I had to vote Government Worker.
Both major parties seem to be intent on increasing the size and power of the central government (for different reasons, using different slogans). If they continue to succeed, the only jobs will be government jobs.
