Workers must be able to learn new technologies quickly for these constantly evolving occupations."

IT positions are plentiful -- even at companies that outsource jobs overseas."

The (Dec 23, 2008) WSJ article also states, "the accounting, information technology, actuarial-science and health-care fields are expected to grow faster than the 7% to 13% average rate for all occupations by 2016, according to the Labor Department."
