For what it's worth, recession isn't a certainty yet. What we're seeing right now is a correction to an equity market that's been looking horribly bloated for a long time now. A lot of the biggest companies have been expending their largesse on stock buybacks to insulate themselves from a downturn that anyone with eyes could see was coming. Companies expecting a downturn will ramp up buybacks during the uptick in order to cash out outside investors, then decelerate the buybacks once the downturn hits. This might seem counterintuitive from a "buy low, sell high" perspective, but it has a few benefits for the company: Buybacks allow companies to consolidate their control before the shit hits the fan and activist investors swoop in to start demanding changes in management or ownership; also, once they start decelerating the buybacks, the company can reallocate that spending to maintain high dividends, keeping existing investors mollified even as their equity loses value. So a lot of companies that have been preparing for this shit shouldn't be changing their hiring budgets too drastically in the near term.

All this is to say that the stock market is not synonymous with the economy, and a lot of this coronavirus panic driving the selloff is probably irrational and temporary, given how little we know about how killable this virus actually is (the fact that simple alcohol solutions over 60% concentration can kill the thing on surfaces is pretty promising). The Chinese production pause together with a rout in oil MAY lead to a global recession, but it's likely to be of the short variety, and nothing like the Great Recession that was underway when I moved to an expensive city without a job. I got hired pretty quickly, though, because I had a college paper in hand predicting a recession based on the housing bubble, so that looked pretty good to employers at the time. And I'm feeling pretty safe now because one of the triggers I predicted months ago for a market downturn was what I called a "double disruption" to Chinese manufacturing (i.e., something on the scale of a natural disaster occurring on top of the ongoing trade war with the U.S., and that's looking to be how this is playing out).

Long story short, you can still make people money during an economic downturn, sometimes even more so. The old investor cliche is that the Chinese word for crisis also means opportunity. Apply to be an advertising copywriter and focus your portfolio on liquor. That stuff advertises and sells like crazy when economic headlines are bad.

Thanks. This helps my anxiety a little, though I can’t believe we’re relying on the competency of fucking Trump right now.

It’s funny you mention writing ad copy — that was always a “real job” I was interested in. The only problem is I have no experience and no idea how you get into it, so... not sure how feasible it is, especially short term. Yo don’t happen to have any tips, do you?

I think the important thing is to create a portfolio, even if it's conceptual (none of the work has been used in a real-world campaign). I took a professional writing class in college, and it involved creating a bunch of fake ad campaigns to improve on campaigns that were actually in the market. The idea was that by the end of the class you had a portfolio of work that you could show to prospective employers, which would almost always start off as a freelancing gig. Starting off, you freelance for several agencies at once until one of them decides they like your work enough to take you on full-time. Just looking around now at some of the job sites, they generally distinguish between whether they require that you have a professional portfolio of already published work or whether they'll accept conceptual work, which is usually the stuff you'd have done in school.

If you want to replicate the class I took, I'd look around at a bunch of commercials. Judge them as short films with the goal of selling the product, then apply those criticisms to write a script for an ad that improves on those shortcomings. Do the same for print or online ads (yeah, they're a shrinking segment of the market, but don't limit your opportunities). In those cases, maybe work up a dummy ad yourself; if you're applying as a writer, they shouldn't focus too much on design. Prepare for an interview where you explain what the prospective client company is already doing in their ads, why you think it's wrong (it would probably help to pick companies that may be struggling in the market; that can bolster a case that their ads are misguided) and how your proposed campaigns address and improve on these shortcomings. That's how these companies actually pitch to clients, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to self yourself in those terms. This all may sound like weird play-acting, but I remember my professional writing professor, who was a retired advertising executive, said an ad I mocked up for a Bose stereo was actually something that could get me hired even if it was never a real ad.
