10 hard to fill job roles of 2018

Here we come again with another interesting piece on recruiting.

Do you know it is not just you (an employer) who does background check/employee screening? A potential candidate also verify the employer’s credibility and reputation online.

Having a good online presence is important to attract potential candidates.

As per a research done by Indeed, 57% of job seekers would automatically distrust a company with no internet presence.

Therefore, spending on creating a good online space for your brand is a worthy investment.

The 10 toughest job roles to fill in 2018

CareerCast has released the list of the ‘most difficult job roles to fill in 2018’ in the United States. Here is the list:

  1. Application Software Developers
  2. Construction Laborers
  3. Financial Analysts  
  4. Home Health Aide
  5. Information Security Analyst
  6. Medical Services Manager
  7. Nurse Practitioner
  8. Personal Care Aide
  9. Physical Therapist
  10. Truck Driver

For application software developers, over a quarter of a million vacancies projected by 2026.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics also predicts that an additional 150,400 construction workers will be needed over the next 8 years.

While several Boomers are nearing retirement, the demand for financial planning is expected to increase notably.  

The findings also show strong growth for nurse practitioners and physical therapists due to an increasing ageing population in the U.S.

The American Transportation Research Institute reported that if current trends hold, the trucking industry faces a shortage of over 175,000 drivers by 2026. In order to keep up with the retirement and turnover rate, this industry will need to recruit approximately 900,000 new drivers over the next decade.
