Toughest Jobs To Fill

According to the Wall Street Journal, the hardest jobs to fill at the moment, even in a tough economy are:

1. Engineers

2. Machinists & Machine Operators

3. Skilled Manual Trades

4. Technicians

5. Sales Representatives

6. Accounting & Finance Professionals

7. Mechanics

8. Laborers

9. IT

10. Production Operators

Given our experience in helping employers find qualified candidates for their openings, I’d say the WSJ has it pretty much dead on the mark. The only glaring omission in the list is nurses and other healthcare professionals, which probably jumps to #1 on the list.

    Hello, I intersed in Sales Representatives Jobs. Over the last few years, I’ve helped hundreds of people successfully land jobs as pharmaceutical representatives. But there’s still work to be done! If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that some people learn differently than others. It is said that the great inventor Thomas Edison failed nearly 25,000 times before he created the battery. When asked what he thought of all his failures he replied, “I haven’t failed. Over the last 20 years I’ve learned 25,000 ways NOT to make a battery.”
