ASA Skills Gap Index Identifies 167 Hard-to-Fill Jobs

The American Staffing Association’s Skills Gap Index identified 167 hard-to-fill occupations in the U.S. for the 12 months ended December 2014, with the 10 most difficult being

1. Occupational therapists

2. Truck drivers, heavy and tractor-trailer

3. Psychiatrists

4. Occupational therapy assistants

5. Photographic process workers and processing machine operators

6. Physical therapists

7. Speech-language pathologists

8. Forest and conservation technicians

9. Internists, general

10. Merchandise displayers and window trimmers

“The ASA Skills Gap Index identifies areas of focus for use in the development of strategies to address the skills shortage in America,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “These data are an important resource for staffing firms as they partner with clients to source qualified talent and implement effective workforce solutions strategies.”

The skills gap index was established by ASA, using the hiring indicator developed by ASA corporate partner CareerBuilder. It measures the level of difficulty (on a scale of one to 100) to recruit for a specific occupation based on demand, supply of active candidates, and total population working in it. The ASA Skills Gap Index concentrates on hiring indicator scores of 50 or less for hard-to-fill occupations, with a demand of 2,000 jobs or more. ASA will update the skills gap index quarterly.

Honestly. I'm not surprised to see trucking in the top 10. I didn't figure it being #2
