As after completing their graduations all Job seekers are hunting for their job. To build their career path. & to make their professional life. As every body dream is to get their job in a multinational company & to become a successful person in a life.

The main areas of investment — and subsequent job creation — include:

Healthcare.
Alternative and renewable energy.
Education.
Roadways and bridge infrastructure.
Small businesses.
Government.

Now let’s take a closer look at each area and some of the resulting opportunities.

Healthcare
Healthcare has been allotted $8.5 billion for research and an additional $1.5 billion for buildings and construction. Positions that will be available to college graduates include staff scientists; computer-based researchers, which require a computer science or math degree; healthcare policy analysts for economics majors; technical writing jobs for English or communications majors; and trained healthcare worker positions for sociology majors. Employers will include medical facilities and agencies, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, and university researchers.
For those graduates without technical degrees, check out the National Institutes of Health’s Web site for information on programs and training related to the stimulus.

Alternative and Renewable Energy
Alternative and renewable energy will receive $67 billion in funding, with 500,000 new jobs projected in renewable wind, solar, hydropower and geothermal endeavors, smart grid creation and energy efficiency initiatives.
The green job market is booming. Entry-level technical jobs abound in engineering (electrical, electronic and mechanical) and in product installation, auditing, field service, technical support, project management and construction. Nontechnical entry-level positions include those in sales, marketing, public relations, communications, customer service, sustainability consultants and educators, corporate social responsibility, architects, urban planners, environmental policy, economic analysts and ecotourism agents.

To learn more about green jobs and careers, take a look at the Green Jobs Guidebook published by the Environmental Defense Fund and the US Department of Energy’s Web site. My Green Scene provides information on green training and education opportunities.

Education
Education funding includes money for school construction, technology in the classroom, and special education, early childhood and K-12 teachers. In addition to classroom teachers, stimulus funds will produce jobs in performance auditing, IT and technology training.

Teaching is a popular choice for this year’s graduating seniors, and news of expanded opportunities comes as welcome relief to Haigh. “Lots of my friends want to teach to ride out the recession, but knowing there will be more jobs in education is great news,” she says.

Race to the Top, which is receiving $5 billion in stimulus dollars, includes funds for adult-literacy education, creating the need for more literacy teachers. Additional money provided to help students pay for higher education, such as Pell grants, college work-study programs and student aid administration, will add the need for accountants, administrators and finance specialists.
For information on these positions and teacher certification, visit the Department of Education Web site.

Infrastructure
Infrastructure funding is directed toward improving roadways, bridges, electricity grids and federal buildings. Civil engineers and cost estimators will be needed. Nontechnical entry-level opportunities can be found in larger construction companies and their suppliers, in areas such as sales and marketing, public relations and customer service.

Small Business
Small businesses are getting additional tax deductions for 2009 capital investments, loan assistance and expanded available credit. The most likely sources of entry-level jobs are startups or small company suppliers for the construction, healthcare, education and energy industries.

A December 2008 survey by Michigan State University showed that companies with less than 54 employees project an increase in hiring college grads in 2009 over 2008, across all industries. This is positive news but will require researching industry associations and publications to find these opportunities. Forbes compiles an annual list of best small companies.

Government
More young professionals are looking for government jobs than ever before. The federal government is actively recruiting candidates of all academic backgrounds. Studentjobs.gov lists government positions for students and recent grads.
Other strategies that have proven successful to secure a job with the federal government include temporary or contract work and job fairs, like Monster’s Keep America Working Tour. Also, first completing an internship or paid fellowship with the department could lead to landing a permanent job.Original Story Here
