Salary range: $39,000 to $136,000

What happened: The floundering housing market has had a direct impact on real estate agents. Since 2006, this sector has lost 200,000 jobs, Wilson says. Real estate most likely won't turn around until the housing market does.

A good replacement job: Any type of sales position, says Schakelman. Since real estate agents are sales professionals, these skills can transfer to another segment that involves client relationships and striking a deal.
