CareerBuilder Releases Lists of the Longest to Fill Positions Around the World

A new global study from CareerBuilder shows that companies around the world have at least one thing in common: difficulty filling in-demand jobs. Employers in the top ten world economies identified which positions at their organizations typically take the longest to fill as they struggle to find qualified candidates. The global survey, conducted online by Harris Interactive&copy from May 9 to June 5, 2013, included more than 5,000 hiring managers and human resource professionals in countries with the largest gross domestic product.

“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,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “We see more hiring managers embracing data tools that can measure market demand and supply of relevant labor in specific geographies, so they can adjust their recruitment strategies and fill vacancies in a timely manner.”

While the positions that take the longest to fill vary from country to country, there are some similarities across the globe. A common thread amongst all ten countries is the extended time it takes to fill engineering and technology positions and revenue-driving roles such as sales and customer service.
