Future Job Creation


Here is a job forecast from the folks at Kiplinger.com:
...a pledge to invest $150 billion in alternative energy over the next decade and to create five million "green" jobs could tap thousands of engineers, scientists, equipment manufacturers and operators in the automotive, transportation, chemical and technology industries. Education initiatives could provide opportunities for educators as well as academic counselors. Some $60 billion earmarked for infrastructure spending over ten years would demand civil engineers to plan cities and towns, and construction workers to build roads and bridges. And a push to supply broadband to every community could create thousands of telecom jobs.
I'm guessing that some of this work will involve technical writers. We do have to instruct and train folks. Of course, I would rather not wait until the end of the next decade to actually get started.
