SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Locals seeking a career change may find the opportunity with several "recession-resistant" jobs in San Diego, as the region grapples with high unemployment amid the coronavirus pandemic.

San Diego-Imperial Center of Excellence for Labor Market Research has identified 64 occupations ranging from entry-level to positions requiring a degree and include nursing, teaching, engineering, and technology industries among others.

"I think people are going to want to also recession-proof their lives after having potentially been displaced from an industry," said Dr. Sunita Cooke, President of MiraCosta.
