Water Jobs Bleg

Okay folks, I need some help here...

I get emails from students, bankers, professionals, et al. who are seeking jobs in the water industry.

Many of them make the perfectly valid point that "water" is becoming more important. Many of them assume that jobs should surface in proportion to this increasing importance, but many of them are still unemployed.

So -- here's your opportunity to help!

Please comment or Email me with websites, resources, etc. for people seeking jobs in the water sector. These jobs can be engineering, but the largest demand supply is from workers seeking jobs in the "soft" areas (venture capital, environment, economics, management, etc.)

Bottom Line: The importance of a sector is a function of the number of people working in that sector. Do we really value gambling (195,000 employees) more than water (40,000 employees)?
