wtf just happened... is ib still viable if a recession hits?

ok so im in hs and i may sound retarded so pls bear with me.

so the 2/10 bond yield inverted today, sending the markets plunging. This is what happened in 08, so we're probably going into a recession. If a recession hits, will ib -> pe still be a viable career option? do banks hire during recessions? and is tech a better career field? im pretty sure vc is gonna die when the tech bubble pops. so will finance even be relevant in 5-10-15 years? (if bernie or e.warren get elected im assuming the industry is screwed)
