Some industries hold promise for future jobs despite the double-digit unemployment rate.
January 7, 2010 Not many new tech jobs are likely to emerge in 2010, but analysts expect to see a rebound in employment by the middle of the decade. Over the next five years, the economy may see the addition of 1 million new technology jobs — an increase of about 10 percent.
January 6, 2010 More nursing jobs will be created in the next decade than in any other single profession. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that nearly 600,000 new jobs for registered nurses will be created by 2018. The median wage for a registered nurse is more than $62,000 — almost twice the average for all occupations.
