Educational lender Sallie Mae will bump its U.S. workforce by 25% by adding 2,000 jobs by the end of 2010. SLM Corp. (Sallie's given name) is shifting the jobs from overseas locations. Though the organization is in constant need of call center workers, it will also stock up on operations support and IT personnel. The company (the upright cousin of the unstable housing lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) operates 20 offices around the country, including in Newark, Del., Lynn Haven, Fla., and Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Even though the positions will be filled through the next 18 months, it probably pays to act now if you want to get a jump up on the competition. SLM announced in December it was looking for 1,100 candidates to fill positions through December 2011 in its Delaware office; between job fairs and online applications, it found more than 3,000 interested parties for spots that wouldn't be available for many months.
