CNBC ran a story this morning about slack in the job market – job vacancies that go unfilled because, in spite of high unemployment, there aren’t enough skilled workers in certain sectors to meet the demand. Extend Health’s Salt Lake City service center is prominently featured as a case in point, withCEO Bryce Williams explaining that we need certain skills in the people we hire and  it becomes a real challenge to find enough qualified candidates. That’s partly because, as Bertha Coombs tells her audience, we operate in the health care sector. Other sectors where jobs are going begging for lack of qualified candidates include computers and life sciences.
