The following list, from Economic Modeling Specialists, is comprised of occupations in the temporary help services industry that are projected to grow by at least three times the projected rate of all job growth, have more than 20,000 projected temporary workers employed by year end, and pay more than $16 per hour.

It's no coincidence that the occupations on this list look remarkably similar to the list of toughest jobs to fill. In cases where in-house HR departments don't have the resources to find the right candidates for hard-to-fill positions, they turn to the staffing and recruiting industry like us to provide skilled temporary workers at the right time, especially for skilled labor positions.

According to an annual forecast by Careerbuilder, forty-two percent of private sector employers plan to hire contract or temporary workers in 2014 that's up 36 percent from last year alone. Of these companies, 42 percent plan to offer some of their temporary workers permanent, full-time work. This coincides with the finding that half of HR managers (51 percent) currently have open positions at their company for which they cannot find qualified candidates.
