The New Job Scene

The big buzzword in the Bay Area's employment sector these days is nanotechnology—the business of creating very small materials by mixing components at the molecular level. Keeping in mind that one nanometer is equal to one-millionth of a millimeter, this is really precise work. After all, the width of a single human hair is around 80,000 nanometers, so this job sector takes high tech equipment and highly trained employees. Called nanoengineers, these individuals must have an advanced degree in one of the hard sciences such as chemistry, physics or electrical engineering.
