Finding Stimulus-Based Jobs

Everyone is trying to anticipate where the
government’s stimulus package is going to create jobs, so it makes good
sense to follow the news to find out how and where new IT positions may
be. TechCareers suggests
there’ll be a need for engineers and project managers to oversee
stimulus-based projects in manufacturing and construction sectors, and
looks at when such jobs might be created in other industries:

Since the stimulus bill is just getting its footing,
don’t look for all of the jobs to start sprouting up immediately.
However, there are a few that are coming available as we speak. For
example, temporary placement agency Adecco is said to
be currently offering 1,500 positions in the mortgage sector, while
1,400 positions are said to be offered in engineering and IT – and
about 1,000 in finance and accounting. These numbers look to increase
in the coming months; however, the full 3.5 million won’t likely see
the light of day for another 2 years.

I am a quick-learner for example at my most resent employer I was approached by a supervisor and asked to develop software on a new piece of equipment (WAGO PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)) using a new language. I spent 2 months at the PLC distributor’ facility while I learned a new language “Structured Text” and programmed the WAGO PLC.
