2010 Job Market: Where Will the Jobs Be?

With the Obama administration's focus on green jobs, meaning they contribute to achieving environmental quality, we hope to get more clarity on what these jobs are, when they'll be available and how exactly to apply.

Business Services

From accountants to administrative assistants, Borrell Associates predicts more than 400,000 openings in business services. This is everything from accountants to managers to administrative assistants and more. The growth is better than 2009 but not back to pre-recession levels.

Among the openings in demand, according to staffing firm Robert Half International of Menlo Park, Calif., is credit managers to help businesses manage delinquent payments, manage cash flow and evaluate credit risk.

Astrid Racine in Orlando, Fla., underwrote real estate bonds for a major bank until her department was dissolved. Real estate and banking are two hard hit areas in the recession.

Because much of her job involved evaluating the credit worthiness of developers, she took that same skill and applied it in a new direction: She's now a credit analyst at a plastic recycler where she analyzes the credit of manufacturers that need her company's products.
