The American Staffing Industry embarked on a nationwide study of what roles are hardest to fill.  Here are the results:

The American Staffing Association’s Skills Gap Index has identified the hardest-to-fill occupations in the U.S. for the fourth quarter of 2016. The two hardest-to-fill jobs in each staffing industry sector are

Engineering, information technology, and scientific:
▪ Computer and information research scientists
▪ Information security analysts

Health care:
▪ Physician assistants
▪ Psychiatrists

▪ Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers
▪ Food service managers

Office−clerical and administrative:
▪ Interviewers, except eligibility and loan
▪ Tellers

▪ Tax preparers
▪ Sales engineers

“The skills gap is growing, as are talent shortages across a number of occupations,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “The ASA Skills Gap Index quantifies those shortages, providing a data source that staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions companies can use when developing flexible and permanent talent acquisition strategies with their clients.”
