According to the seventh annual talent shortage survey from staffing firm ManpowerGroup, 49% of employers in all industries are experiencing difficulty filling open positions within their organizations, despite the fact that millions of people are still desperate for jobs and unemployment remains stuck at more than 8%.
ManpowerGroup surveyed more than 1,300 U.S. employers in the first quarter of 2012 to determine which employees rank among the most-wanted.

Those workers, also known as craftsmen or artisans, typically develop their skills through training as apprentices. They top Manpower’s list for a third consecutive year.
