Where the jobs are in the middle of 2010

Some of the latest reports indicate that heath care fields continue to be the best fields in which to find a job.  Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists continue to lead the way with the most demand.  But be careful.  I have it from a reliable source that in order to be a physical therapst you may have to dissect a cadaver.   Nurses are still in demand also.  Demand for sales jobs are up.  My advice is that you get into sales only if yo are really good at convincing people to see things your way.
