A skills shortage crisis is expected to intensify in the coming months and years, which will result in major gaps in the workforce in a wide range of occupations and industries. This will have a significant impact on productivity and on economic growth.
“Talent shortages are real and are not going away,” said Kip Wright, senior vice president, Manpower North America. “As the struggle to find the right talent continues, and candidates with in-demand skills get the upper hand, employers will be under pressure to position themselves as ‘talent destinations’ to attract the best workers that will drive their business forward.”
High demand careers include new jobs created through economic growth and replacement jobs due to retired workers. If you are just graduating college, looking to change your career, or have been a victim of company downsizing, the following in-demand careers may be of interest to you.
