Everyone is trying to anticipate where the government's stimulus package is going to create jobs, so it makes good sense to follow the news to find out how and where new IT positions may be. TechCareers suggests there'll be a need for engineers and project managers to oversee stimulus-based projects in manufacturing and construction sectors, and looks at when such jobs might be created in other industries:

Since the stimulus bill is just getting its footing, don't look for all of the jobs to start sprouting up immediately. However, there are a few that are coming available as we speak. For example, temporary placement agency Adecco is said to be currently offering 1,500 positions in the mortgage sector, while 1,400 positions are said to be offered in engineering and IT - and about 1,000 in finance and accounting. These numbers look to increase in the coming months; however, the full 3.5 million won't likely see the light of day for another 2 years.
