Indeed lists the top 4 hiring industries for 2009 as:
- Education – up 38%
- Hospitality – up 20%
- Retail – up 17%

Even more interesting were the Top 10 fastest growing opportunities in 2009, based on keywords in job ads:
- Cloud Computing
- Corporate Social Responsibility
- Social Media
- Speech Language Pathologist (SLP)
“The emergence of social media opportunities is striking, with Twitter being the #1 growth trend along with Facebook (#4), Blogger (#6), and Social Media (#9). Other strong technology-related trends are Cloud Computing at #2 and iPhone at #3.
This year’s episodes of financial malfeasance have boosted the demand for Corporate Social Responsibility experts (#5). Healthcare hasn’t grown as an industry recently, but fast-growing pockets include Pediatrician (#7), Hospitalist (#8), and Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) (#10).
