At first glance, the list of job postings provided by CareerBuilder that compares the number of jobs posted vs. number of positions filled suggests we should all become nurses or software developers.
But a closer look reveals that certain jobs are going begging to a much greater degree than are nursing and software posts.
CareerBuilder looked at job postings for 20 job descriptions requiring college degrees and reported the number of positions that were filled. Based on raw numbers, registered nurses, software developers and sales managers reported the highest number of jobs that were not filled. The lowest “gap” positions were computer and information systems managers, mechanical engineers and HR managers.
