Sales Representatives are the Most In Demand Job in the World According to a Manpower Research Study

Are you a sales rep that is looking for work? If you are, there is a good chance that someone is looking to hone in on your skills. If you are not looking to get into the sales field and be a sales representative, there is still plenty of opportunity out there for you. With unemployment at a low of around 3%, companies large and small are looking for people that have the ability to achieve greatness within their office.

Taken from The Manpower Research Center

Manpower Inc. surveyed nearly 37,000 employers across 27 countries and territories in late January to determine the extent to which talent shortages are impacting today’s labor markets. The survey results revealed that 41 percent of employers worldwide are having difficulty filling positions due to the lack of suitable talent available in their markets, which is 1 percentage point stronger compared to last year’s survey.
