    It does not matter where you are in the world at the moment; almost all major economies are starting to be affected by the current economic slowdown. Interest rates are at all-time lows and many industries' verticals from financial to car manufacturing are being propped up governments in order to try and minimize the fallout from the credit crunch. Despite all of this doom and gloom, there are many industries that flourish in turmoil. Jobs in the fields of accounting and law will flourish with the need to liquidate and recover debts from companies that don't survive the downturn. However, there are other fields that are not quite as obvious.
    I was reading a Forbes article today on Recession Proof Jobs and I was surprised to see that software development was the number two job in the list. When you think about it though, IT departments are in a unique position to realize costs savings through automating business processes. So despite all of the gloom in the press it is good to see that the IT sector may flourish despite the downturn.
