If you’re new years resolution includes finding a new job, you’re in luck. CareerBuilder just released a new study releasing the hottest in-demand jobs in 2016.

CareerBuilder partnered with EMSI, Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. to compare job postings with the number of hires over the last 12 month period. From there, they found the biggest gaps.


“For over 100 occupations in the U.S., there is far more job posting activity than hiring month to month…While many of these jobs are in the technology and health care sectors, there are also plenty of opportunities in areas such as marketing, sales and transportation. The availability of jobs across industries underscores the need for companies to evaluate where their talent deficits are and become more strategic about how they fill these needs–whether that means reskilling their current workers, offering higher salaries to attract workers, or using data analytics to target talent with the right skills.” – Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder.
