Geology jobs among winners in the economy

Jobs in mining and energy are among the "winners" in terms of growth, according to statistics based on a Labor Dept. report released Friday:

"Mining and oil and gas extraction:
Knowledge of minerals, geography and fuel extraction has been helpful in 2008. Mining support jobs have grown 3.6% so far, while the overall mining industry has expanded 2.3%. Jobs related to oil and gas extraction grew 2.1%. Key skills for such jobs include taking geological samples, exploring prospective sites, excavating pits, digging for minerals and tasks related to oil and gas extraction."

Thanks to for spotting this. [above: credit, Asarco]
