The 10 toughest jobs to fill in 2018
A new report from online jobs site CareerCast finds that hiring managers have trouble finding applicants with the necessary skills to fill jobs in some of today’s most in-demand professions. That’s despite the fact that many of these careers — including truck drivers, financial advisers and app developers — have the highest growth outlook and will have a number of openings in 2018 and beyond.

To determine the most in-demand professions, CareerCast evaluated Bureau of Labor Statistics data on growth outlook, as well as industry and profession hiring trends over the last decade. Also part of the equation were trade statistics; university graduate employment data; and the database of listings. The following positions top this year’s list of toughest jobs to fill.
