MSN Careers has posted a list of the 25 Best Career Choices to pursue in 2009, based on the jobs that saw the most growth over the second half of 2008. I wasn't surprised by jobs like "Human Resources specialist" making the list. Just about every search turns up an HR job. I was surprised by "writer" making the list, until I realized that writer largely means "Technical Writer."
You can find the rest of the list here.
