Great Jobs – really?

I just ran across a new book, entitled, Great Jobs in the President’s Stimulus Plan written by Laurence Shatkin, PhD.  You can probably find it at most public libraries.  It’s at Arapahoe Library District (where I work) for sure.  Shatkin summarizes where  jobs are apt to increase or decrease as a result of the passage of President Obama’s economic stimulus plan.  You will learn about what may happen in fields such as education, energy, construction, health care, and manufacturing.  The author discusses specific job titles, provides earnings data, forecasted growth rates and number of job openings plus useful narratives about each one.  In the introduction, advice on how to use this information is clearly layed out.

If you are looking for a job, you won’t find any instant solutions here but it may help you direct your search or strategy going forward.
