“Epic changes are ahead throughout the professional landscape,” said Rob McGovern, CEO of Jobfox. “It's just like 1991, when we didn't know the Internet was coming. New job titles will emerge, many of which haven't been invented yet. Savvy professionals will be prepared to take advantage of new opportunities.”

The Jobfox list is based on Obama's economic stimulus proposals for construction of roads, bridges, and transit; oversight of financial markets; energy independence; healthcare; and community involvement.
