How To Get A Stimulus Job

By John Smith

According to President Obama the massive stimulus package he signed into law will generate or save 3.5 million American jobs, although the Republicans say the number will be lower - but they all agree that it create new jobs at the manager and executive levels. So many of you who are not working or think that you may be in line in receiving the pink slip may be wondering if there is a stimulus job for you? The answer lies in that fact how well the stimulus plan works. Most of the job offering will initially go to blue-collar workers (such as construction workers), public-sector employees (such as teachers), and those experienced in working with government entities

It's a belief that the economic activity generated by the stimulus will lead to new jobs in retail, leisure and hospitality, and other sectors as companies and individuals who directly benefit from the plan begin to spend their windfall. The stimulus plan backers however predict that 90 percent of the jobs created will be in the private sector. The point is no matter how well the plan succeeds, however, it's safe to say that the following six white-collar occupations should see an upsurge in demand over the next two years: For more industry trends check out the JobConcierge Top 100 Jobs in 2010.

1. Although more than 60 percent of planners currently work for government entities, an increasing number are employed at architectural, engineering and management consulting firms. As state and local governments quickly determine how best to use the billions of dollars flowing in from the federal government, they will rely on urban planners to guide them on everything from the best location for new school construction to the environmental impact of infrastructure projects.

The stimulus package will bring in happy news for Civil engineers. Thousands of civil engineers will be needed to design and supervise the construction of roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, wind turbines and other projects that get a green light as a result of the stimulus package. . The government employs about 12 percent of the nation's engineers; the rest work in private industry.

The next set of professionals who will directly benefit will be Computer systems analysts. Improving the technology infrastructure of schools, hospitals and medical offices is an important objective of the stimulus. IT pros will be needed at all levels, for jobs ranging from wiring buildings for Internet access to transitioning the healthcare system to electronic medical records and e-prescriptions.

With President Obama prioritizing a "cure for cancer in our time," the stimulus represents a boon for medical researchers. With billions of dollars being funneled to the National Institutes of Health about a third of medical researchers work for colleges and universities; most of the rest work at private research firms, pharmaceutical companies, and hospitals.

Management Consultants are the right candidates to make complex decisions with big money. , corporate and government leaders tend to get sweaty palms - and that's where management consultants come in. Consultants can bring the expertise to analyze vexing problems and develop sweeping, ambitious proposals to solve them.

At the federal, state and local levels, accountants and auditors will be required to make sure the numbers add up. Some experts predict that the government may need to hire auditors for its auditors. Auditors definitely have a reason to smile about this.
