Companies are pushing to hire again, in some cases engaging in battles for hard-to-find tech talent. In our recent hiring survey, HR professionals and recruiters shared the roles they are finding most difficult to fill. New to this year’s top ten: software developers and C#. Others skill-sets and positions are firmly rooted in the hard-to-find category like security analysts and engineers, database administrators and technology professionals with active federal security clearance.


Java/J2EE professionals are tough to recruit with one respondent noting there are just not enough developers on the market and too many openings. In fact, there are more than 14,000 job postings on Dice requesting Java/J2EE as one of the skills. For .Net programmers experience is key, as hiring manager are looking for IT professionals who’ve demonstrated their prowess in this framework. And for those with C# know-how, the average paycheck is $89,400 and there are open positions in 48 states including Alabama, Texas, New York and California.

Demand for security experts is so broad-based, these professionals could work for defense contractors, retailers, or transportation companies to name a very few. Not unlike security experts database administrators are consistently sought after -- earning on average $91,000 annually.

I would not want to live an any of those places... way too many people.

I would need a very high 6 figure income to put up with all the BS involved in living in such close quarters with others...
