The whole premise of our articles and blog is to tell the public about jobs , certifications and licenses and job search strategy which will help position them for success. We honestly did not think there would be much interest in our topics but all of you have told us differently. Now we want to hear from you again.

Here are our picks for 2009. Please give us yours.
Last year we talked about the “12 Certifications and Licenses YouWill Need In The Green Economy“. In 2010, we are unveiling the 7 hottest certifications for the 2010 economic recovery. Here’s why: The flow of money from the stimulus package has been steadily building up and the deadline for some of federal agencies get their “shovel ready”money under contract is approaching. While there are some who disagree that stimulus package will have an effect on the overall unemployment statistics, it is a proven fact that infrastructure construction projects have a strong multiplier effect on the local economy and supplier chains by creating other jobs and economic flow.
Certifications and licenses are an excellent way for job seekers to add to their experience and gain a competitive advantage in the job market without a major investment in a new college degree. However, we do want to emphasize that certifications and licenses do not guarantee a job. If you do not know which certification is right for you, check our new e-book: “Is It Worth The Green?”Here are the 7 certifications for 2010:
CCE (Certified Cost Engineer): Every construction project has a price. Cost Engineers give building owners and construction professionals exact cost estimates of materials and staff for their projects. This field has huge shortage of people in the energy, commercial, healthcare and industrial sectors. It is highly recommended that a person has architecture, construction or engineering experience before pursuing this certification.
CEM (Certified Energy Manager):Energy managers are the people who will make sure that buildings and other facilities will meet and stay within their energy consumption goals. Many of these professionals will primarily work in real estate, government and industrial settings. They are sometimes called Resource Managers.

As the green economy moves forward there will be an increased need for these professionals who understand the new cap-and-trade systems and Clean Air Act (CAA) regulations for greenhouse gases.
CTAM(Certified Asset Manager): Infrastructure asset managers are responsible for managing the cost of owning and operating municipal and civil infrastructure such as water/wastewater treatment systems; roads and bridges or energy generation and transmission. The water industry is particularly in need of people with asset management ability because the nation will need to overhaul its water systems to conserve drinking water and improve the quality of treated wastewater.
LEED-AP(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design): This certification is focuses on green building techniques and energy efficiency. 75% of the federal government buildings and countless private owned properties will be made more energy-efficient and ecofriendly. If you are considering a career move into building construction, this is the certification that will set you apart.
PE (Professional Engineer): The Smart Grid, alternative energy, nuclear and fossil fuel and shovel ready infrastructure projects are in dire need of licensed electrical, civil, structural, geotechnical, mechanical, environmental, mining and petroleum engineers. There are not enough people going into these fields to backfill the Baby Boomers who are retiring. If you are an engineer, a PE will make a big difference in your career and financial future.
PSP (Project Scheduling Professional): Every construction project must be planned and scheduled before the first shovel hits the dirt. PSPs use the latest software tools and processes to make sure that project tasks are completed within the prescribed timeframes and prevent
