Employers have the hardest time hiring accountants and auditors, data from the Bureau of Labor and Employment Statistics suggests.

 

Darwin Amolejar of InterAksyon.com reports that from January 2009 to June 2010, the top three vacancies that were hardest to fill were "for accountants and auditors, electronics and communications engineers, and systems analysts and designers."
