Industry trends - Where are there a shortage of good people?

 
#1 Industry trends - Where are there a shortage of good people?

So I am currently trying to map out the consulting market and would be very interested to know which parts of the market are experiencing a shortage of good people ( expertise shortage)?

And in turn are more inclined to pay bigger salaries...

Any advice, thoughts or views would be welcome :-)

Thanks in advance.

in terms of operational consulting expertise, I've seen demand for people with payroll skills.

in terms of industry, life sciences are getting very excited about all their deals and whatnot so there's bound to be demand for folks.

Oddly that sounds like the worst kind of lazy/no clue recruitment consultant to me.

The last time I checked that the only way to learn things in a short space of time is to ask those more experienced or better still, those that have experienced these things...

Which comes to my ears as 'I want it but wont earn it'.

Anyone could come on here and point to specific bubbles in the market place. But what would the point be anyway? You need to understand what's happening within those bubbles - and that comes with hard yards not glib strap lines. Try reading the news, keeping up with market trends, actually talking with people, working things out. Not coming on here asking for a short cut to a pay day.

All of the below In which I am already doing...

Last time I checked the point of a forum was for discussion? Which I was trying to create and a few other people saw no harm in...

Thank you to those who have seen no harm in the question which I posed, and any other USEFUL comments would be greatly appreciated...

Mars has a point - you cannot get this information effectively in a "short space of time". Otherwise it will be a discrete transfer of information which could be out of date in a few months. Additionally without a deep understanding of your industry, you'll invariably be strongest on the "supply side" which means you'll fling candidates at opportunities, they will be the wrong candidates or you won't be talking to the right people. Your candidates will not progress, they will see you as a blagger, and your reputation (and your clients) will be out of the door faster than Bushy on pension day...

Consulting demand is driven by client demand, which is driven by industry demand which is driven by, ultimately, a consumer. You need to be able to talk through the entire area of this demand value chain for your area to be credible.

What you should have done - really - is to have done some research first and qualified your request. A good question would have been something like "Looking at the increasing usage of PCs, I firmly believe that top skills are required in niche technologies like Visual Basic. Before I go to my next CFO meeting, can anybody help me validate this?"

We would have still ridiculed this question - but in a wholly different and exciting way...

May I point out that you have both just made huge assumptions and do not no what prior research I have done...

The way you have advised I should have structured the question wouldn't have appealed to a broad range of people, it would have merely appealed to a specific set of people.

The Irony in both of your comments was actually quite amusing..

But we are all entitled to our opinions I guess... :-)

The fact you cannot spell the word "know" appropriately should tell you there is a clear shortage of good recruitment consultants....

And no - not everyone is entitled to an opinion. That is one of the biggest fallacies of our world today. Ill informed opinions (re: Mitchell and Webb - "I bet you reckon something!") contribute to the noise which pollutes everyday information flow.

So - go ahead and mash the keypad with your forehead again hoping for some contribution whilst the rest of us use this forum for a real discussion....

Well as you are currently 'mapping out' the market why not tell US where the shortages are? I'm assuming your market mapping is a structured exercise not a limp poke and prod to see if you can get a resume or two through an open door, so tell us what you have discovered. Give before you ask to receive. Maybe you'll survive your first few months in recruitment and make a career for yourself if you get that principle in time.
