PROFESSIONS FACING A SHORTAGE IN THE U.S.
THE PROFESSIONAL AREAS FACING A SHORTAGE IN THE U.S. AND HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE
There are hundreds of professions currently facing a shortage in the United States, both in terms of quantity and in quality of the professionals. The reason for that is due to the fact that in the past 8 to 10 years the U.S. job market created more jobs than the number of people available or qualified to fill them. To minimize this problem and meet the market demand, the country needs to rely on the labor and talent of foreign professionals.
Among the scarcest professions facing the shortage we can highlight health professionals, including doctors (basically all specialties), dentists, nurses and physiotherapists.
IT professionals are up next. Especially with the increasing advancement of technology, cell phones and other online communication tools. Program developers, systems analysts and many other professionals of technology can find great opportunities in the U.S.
The U.S. also suffers from a shortage of Engineers, from the civil construction field to the oil and gas segment.
Other currently scarce professions include airline pilots, lawyers, special education professionals, architects and many others.
It is also important to mention that entrepreneurs are always very welcome in the United States as they benefit the economy and create jobs. A businessperson who can demonstrate a good professional background and a well-developed business plan for the U.S. market will have great chances of eligibility for a Green Card.
