The unemployment rate stands at its highest level in more than a decade, and what may be surprising is there are still job openings out there:  jobs that many consider to be "recession proof."

With hundreds of people are losing their jobs everyday, personal reinvention may by the key to finding a new job. 

There are several key fields that experts say can be recession proof.   Careers in healthcare, education and even government have great long term potential. 

The demand for green jobs is expected to grow exponentially, with both blue collar and white collar jobs going green.
