    The substantial influx of government -funded Smart Grid projects is projected to create approximately 280,000 new jobs between 2009 and 2012 according to a detailed report by KEMA (The U.S. Smart Grid Revolution KEMA's Perspectives for Job Creation, 2009*), a global, leading authority in energy consulting, testing, and certification.. "Our Career Development Workshop will provide job seekers with the tools and resources they need to capitalize on emerging opportunities within the smart grid. Last year's Career Development Track was a tremendous success, enabling attendees an opportunity to broaden the scope of their skill sets. We are predicting even greater success for our May 2011 event," said Puja Lakhlani, President,

    "The expected growth of the Smart Grid space may potentially lead to a shortage of skilled people. From engineering to sales on the utility operations to design of products and programs, we see nothing but great opportunities for career development. We are very happy to be partnering with Smart Grid Careers to help those interested in this space to get the necessary opportunities for an active participation in this exciting opportunity," said Anto Budiardjo, CEO of Clasma Events and the producer of ConnectivityWeek 2011.
