Actuary

Odds of Hanging On

 
Not nearly as fun or interesting as the other kind of limbo. (Source)

Hanging on with this job is all about performance. If you continue to save your company gobs of money every year, you're definitely paying for yourself and making your annual employment a no-brainer (to any company smart enough to hire an actuary in the first place). On the other hand, if your findings repeatedly turn into losses, you could find yourself in actuarial limbo.
