Someone once told me “if you want to find jobs or any opportunity in America – follow the money” $46 Billion is headed to US Port expansion on the east coast. Jobs anyone?

The Ripple Effect On Jobs
U.S. port authorities and their private-sector partners are planning to invest up to $46 billion over the next five years in capital improvements in their marine operations and other properties, according to a recent survey by the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA). These projects are being done in response to the widening of the Panama Canal which will bring larger cargo ships and oil tankers to the east coast.
What these investments mean to you and me is simple: More jobs. Let me explain. In order for these facilities to handle the increased freight traffic every bridge, building, railway, road and tunnel for miles around the port must be upgraded. Congress is already considering a national transportation bill which will allocate federal monies for states to improve transportation infrastructure. The public and private investment into infrastructure upgrades could create thousands of long term jobs and stimulate thousands more through demand. For more information see the article below
A Hot Jobs for Civil Engineers and Other Careers
Here is a partial list of jobs that could be created:
Architect: Designs buildings
Building Information Modeler/CAD: assists architects and engineers by “drawing” structures with software.
Civil Engineers: Design roads, bridges, tunnels and utilities
Construction Management and Inspectors: Deal with construction issues
Environmental engineers and scientists: Deal with environmental compliance issues such as air and water quality.
Field workers/Trades: Do the “hands on” work of building
This article is not intended to denigrate or politicize clean energy technology or the solar industry but to inform the public about new environmental jobs. The links provided lead to important job information.
Hazardous Materials Managers & Technicians: According to the Bureau of Labor (BLS) statistics the growth of jobs for hazardous materials removal workers will range from 20-28% or higher over the next decade. During a cleanup action, such as the one in California, technicians wearing protective gear (PPE) will sample all of the equipment and materials in the facility to determine what is clean and contaminated. Clean materials and equipment will be removed and disposed in the appropriate manner. Contaminated equipment and materials will dismantled, cleaned, packed and shipped to a licensed disposal facility.
Inspectors: Environmental Inspectors will make sure that the contaminated equipment, waste containers and the facility will be cleaned to regulations. They will also monitor the sampling, cleaning and closing procedures to make sure no corners are cut.
Safety Managers:Safety managers will monitor the employees and safety equipment to make no one contracts a contamination derived illness. They will also have a key role in ensuring no contamination is released into the public.
As the solar industry continues its growth trend, there will be strong opportunities for environmental/hazardous waste professionals. It is my hope that many job seekers will explore environmental jobs to find the right opportunity for them.
