We need teachers. We need nurses. We probably need primary care doctors, especially in "underserved" areas. We will need grunt health care workers for an aging population

Nurses certainly, and the full range of medical support personnel (my sister has done a lot of things, and is currently a medical transcriptionist in the midwest - very busy).

First criterion now would be something that can't be moved offshore, so gardeners, vets, dentists, etc. I talked recently to a 4 year college grad who got frustrated with the job search, and started a carpet cleaning business. Needs to hire an assistant, and will train, and can't find anyone for decent pay, but hard, boring work. I bet he'll find someone this year.
