IT managers, engineers & accountants hardest to find: Study
New Delhi: IT manager/network administrator, engineer, accountant and software developers are some of the position that are the hardest to fill globally, says a study.

According to a new global study from human capital solutions firm CareerBuilder, companies around the world have at least one thing in common: difficulty filling in-demand jobs as organisations struggle to find qualified candidates.

In India, the positions that take the longest to fill include -- IT manager/network administrator, computer programmer, accountant, engineer, administrative assistant/ secretary and marketing professional.

This survey was conducted online within the US, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia and the UK by Harris Interactive on behalf of CareerBuilder from May 9 to June 5, 2013 and included more than 5,000 hiring managers and human resource professionals.

The survey further noted that while the positions that take the longest to fill vary from country to country, there are some similarities across the globe as engineering and technology positions and revenue-driving roles such as sales and customer service generally take the longest time to fill.

Besides engineering and technology positions and revenue- driving roles like sales and customer service, countries like US, Russia had difficulty to fill positions like truck driver and security guard, while Japan had difficulty to fill positions like construction worker and tradesperson, it said.

Commenting on the findings, CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson said : "Any positions that remain open for an extended period of time can negatively impact both the financial health of a company and its overall employee morale."

Ferguson added that "we see more hiring managers embracing data tools that can measure market demand and supply of relevant labour in specific geographies, so they can adjust their recruitment strategies and fill vacancies in a timely manner".
