Engineering Degree: U.S. Department of Energy Announces Job Fair

If you are wondering what jobs are viable for future employment, you should always keep tabs on where the U.S. government is putting their stimulus monies. Students who are thinking of earning their engineering degree for example will have many jobs opportunities available. The United States department of energy announced a job fair this month in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The U.S. Department of Energy is preparing for large crowds at an event advertising thousands of new jobs at a former nuclear weapons complex in South Carolina.

Employment agencies are at the James Brown Arena in Augusta, Ga., on Monday giving out information on an estimated 3,000 jobs at the Savannah River Site.

The positions at the complex along the South Carolina-Georgia border that will be funded by $1.6 billion in stimulus money.

The fair had originally been planned for Paine College. But organizers say they changed it to a larger venue because of increased interest in the jobs.

Last month, about 2,000 attended a similar job fair in nearby Barnwell.

South Carolina's unemployment rate was 12.1 percent in June, slightly up from May's rate of 12 percent.

Earning an engineering degree, business management degree, or even an international business degree will have opportunities to work for federal agencies like the U.S. Department of energy. Paying close attention to workforce trends can help you choose a major with viable jobs regardless of the economy
