Business Owners on the Hunt for Skilled Workers

The economy is improving and business owners need workers now.

Six in 10 CFOs reported that it’s “somewhat challenging” to find skilled candidates for professional-level positions today. That’s bad news for them but potentially good news for you – because it means there are job openings out there waiting to be filled.

That’s according to a recent survey of more than 2,100 CFOs in more than 20 of the largest U.S. markets by staffing firm Robert Half. Says Paul McDonald, Robert Half senior executive director: “We see more companies benchmarking salaries to ensure pay remains competitive and offering attractive perks, like telecommuting or retirement packages.”

This is exciting news for workers qualified for these types of jobs. But there’s a problem: College students today don’t necessarily major in those areas. The experts at Consolidated Credit feel at least some of that stems from a lack of foresight college kids use when choosing a major…

“We’ve worked with so many young people who have fallen into debt because they can’t find a decent-paying job – or any job at all. And then when you talk about their career path, you start understand why,” says Gary Herman, President of Consolidated Credit. “Psychology major, history, a plain business administration degree or a liberal arts degree just won’t attract the attention of employers. You want to do something you live, but parents and students should check out what degrees attract the most attention before choosing a major.”

So what are those jobs? U.S. News & World Report published their best jobs of 2014 earlier this year. They include:

  • Software Developer
  • Computer Systems Analyst
  • Operations Research Analyst
  • Financial advisor
  • Accountant
  • Information security analyst
  • Software developer
  • Plumber
  • Structural iron and steelworker
