Payroll is a good "recession proof" job as almost all companies whether large or even the smaller sized ones, usually have atleast one. Although, it may not be very high paying and chances of progress are less, it will ensure a steady and stable career. Ideally one should try to gain entry into a government organization after having accumulated a few years experience on the private side.

... another option.
Another option worth considering may be 'Life Insurance' and related field. My insurer (agent) started about three years back and now enjoying a steady income. Can be explored for more details...

I would recommend either Payroll/basic bookkeeping (if she has good math aptitude AND interest). Otherwise, a good recession proof occupation is Admnistration/Office Manager/Clerical positions.

For most of these, knowledge of basic computer office softwares (MS package) and some office experience are all that is needed. Some employers want a certain typing speed (usually 60 wpm). This job can be found in any industry.

Private colleges offer short courses in MS.

One of my friend has similar question last year.
She took a 2 month short course in airline reservation(SABRE).
and got immediately job with skylink-Canada(start earning 12$/Hour)
airline industry will not pay much money but getting job is way easier and course is very simple.
if this is something interested to you then visit this institute(below)
reg course fee-- you can bargain with them....they might ask 800$ for SABRE-course, but my friend did same course for 500$ only....she got a good deal.
they might ask you to take 6 month long term couse to make more money..which is useless, but tell them you need just to learn only
SABRE(reservation system) which is enough to get job.

*****************************************************
SABRE-Airline Reservation system
duration: 2 months(approx)
cost: around 500 $ (certificate course)
International Institute Of Travel

hope this may help:up:
