Jobs web site: demand is up for soil scientists

While playing around with's nifty graphs for displaying trends in job postings, I made a graph at Indeed for "consulting soil scientists" or "soil science consultants" and was pleasantly surprised to get a definite upwards trend. Removing the consultant label has the same trend and about double the job listings. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out into 2006.
A year ago, Fast Company had geoscientists listed among the top 25 jobs for 2005 in an index weighted 35% to job growth. Seems they predicted correctly, at least as far as soil scientists are concerned. Fast Company also has a top 25 list for 2006.
