Wanted Analytics provides us with the following data: “A recent article on Yahoo predicted that Medical and Health Services Managers will be a hot career in 2012. We decided to take a look at recent hiring demand and the talent supply to see what recruiting conditions look like now.

Over the past 90 days, more than 45,000 job ads were posted online for Medical and Health Services Managers – a 2% increase over the same 90-day period last year. We found more than 5,600 employers that are currently advertising Medical and Health Services Manager job openings. Many of these companies are advertising hundreds of unique job openings.
