Mr. President, what should I study in community college?

Remember how during the debate the president promised that we could all retrain at community colleges? Take a look at the following news item and then answer the question that follows.

Pfizer Outsources Trial Management to Cognizant January 24,

Pfizer Inc. is outsourcing high-end business processes in clinical data management and biometrics to Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp., an offshore outsourcing company based in Teaneck, New Jersey, with operations in India.

Pfizer Global Research and Development, through its Indian affiliate, announced the multiyear business process outsourcing relationship on Monday. Cognizant will provide database design, data management, programming and clinical communication or medical writing as part of the deal.

So, Mr. President, if Pfizer is outsourcing programming and writing jobs to India.... what careers do you see as local growth industries?
