We just released our Manpower Top 10 hardest positions to fill study (yes even in these tough recessionary times it is still difficult to fill some positions -crazy I know). Below are the results for America.
The top 10 jobs that employers are having difficulty filling across America are:
1.Technicians (primarily production/operations, engineering or maintenance
3. Accounting & Finance Staff
6. Sales Representatives
8. Sales Managers
9. Skilled Trades
