Salary range: $26,000 to $45,000

What happened: In short, the Internet. With more readers absorbing their news online, the demand for print has fallen and newspaper jobs are dwindling. Another 4,400 jobs in this industry will disappear by 2018 (out of 69,400 total in 2008), according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A good replacement job: Online reporter. While print is drying up, there is demand for more information on the Internet. Another option to consider: communication specialist in a corporation.

"Your choice of industry is only one factor in keeping a job," says Jeff Cohen, author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Recession-Proof Careers." "Never underestimate the importance of your education, training, performance on the job and work relationships to stay ahead of the game."
