Wanted Analytics brings us the following: Accountants have been projected as one of the careers to see significant growth in 2012. We decided to take a look at recruiting conditions for these jobs to see what hiring demand looks like now and how hard-to-recruit these skills are likely to be.
In the last 90 days, there were more than 64,000 jobs advertised online for Accountants and Auditors across the United States. This represents a 25% increase compared to the same 90-day period in 2010. Approximately 35% of the job ads were placed by recruiting firms and staffing agencies, while 65% were advertised by employers. We found more than 6,700 employers currently advertising open Accounting jobs online – and many of them are currently advertising hundreds of unique job openings. It is likely that Recruiters will face fierce competition to fill all open positions.
