10 Scarce Job Skills in Atlanta

March 27, 2018

Job skill scarcity occurs when employer demand for a certain skill exceeds worker supply of that skill in a certain area. In other words, these are the skills employers are actively seeking and having trouble finding. As a job seeker, it’s beneficial to pay attention to what skills are scarce in certain areas to know where it may be easier for you to find a job within your skillset or what skills you could acquire to be more attractive to employers in your city.
