The 25 most wanted US professions



Jobfox did a survey and found that Software Design/Development, Nursing, Accounting/Finance Executive, Sales/Business Development Representative and Administrative Assistant are the top five most active professions in the March 2008 Jobfox Top 25 Most Wanted U.S. Professions rankings. The report reflects the professions most often targeted by employers and recruiters using Jobfox to search for and find new or replacement workers during a 120-day period ending February 21, 2008.

Professions rounding out the top 10 are: Corporate Finance; Networking/System Administration; Intelligence; General Accounting; and Technical Customer Support. The complete list of rankings is available at www.jobfox.com/Site/PressRoom.aspx

The March 2008 Jobfox Top 25 Most Wanted U.S. Professions rankings were derived from a stratified random sample of more than 4,000 U.S. job openings from the Jobfox database during a 120-day period ending February 21, 2008. In total, Jobfox identified more than 150 distinct professions for which employers were seeking candidates during the period. Also captured in the rankings are the median salary ranges desired by candidates for top-ranked professions. A stratified random sample of more than 100,000 Jobfox candidate profiles, matched to specific professions, was used to determine median salaries for each profession.
