Jobs in-demand for 2015 data was compiled using reports from WANTED Analytics and CareerBuilder in December of 2014. WANTED Analytics’ National Vertical Job Market Overview report was sourced to gather median salary and aggregate hiring data for each of the 27 featured job titles.
Data gathered from CareerBuilder includes CareerBuilder’s hiring indicator, aggregate candidate supply report and aggregate candidate demand report for each of the 27 featured job titles. Candidate supply data is a combination of information which candidates have shared with CareerBuilder.com or affiliated CareerBuilder websites. “Active candidate” data represents a de-duplicated data set of job seekers who registered as a user, posted or updated a resume, or applied to a job on CareerBuilder.com or an affiliated CareerBuilder.com website within 45 days of January 19, 2014.
The Hot Jobs 2015 findings are a combination of several components including field market research and an analysis of 2015 economic projections and market trends: Randstad fielded a survey to its recruiters in November 2014 to capture their perspective on the most in-demand jobs in their fields and what the common skillsets are for these positions. The results were then analyzed by top Randstad executives who provided commentary on their industries of expertise in conjunction with economic reports and data from WANTED Analytics and CareerBuilder.
