Most Demand Jobs

Research from recruitment firm CareerBuilder along with Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI) that provides employment data and economic analysis, have listed the hottest in-demand jobs.

The list comprises occupations where the number of job ads companies post each month outpace the number of people they actually hire.

The list includes other data points, such as job growth that indicate these well-paying occupations have seen healthy growth and demand in this year.

Eight of these 19 jobs for 2016 are engineering, software, web app development and IT-related positions, whereas six are in healthcare, two in finance-related fields and two are in marketing and sales.

“While many of these jobs are in the technology and health care sectors, there are also plenty of opportunities in areas such as marketing, sales and transportation.

“The availability of jobs across industries underscores the need for companies to evaluate where their talent deficits are and become more strategic about how they fill these needs–whether that means reskilling their current workers, offering higher salaries to attract workers, or using data analytics to target talent with the right skills,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation.
