Survey IDs 25 'Most Wanted' Professionals
What types of skilled professionals remain in the highest demand in the United States? A new report answers this question in its "Top 25 Most Wanted U.S. Professions" rankings.

The report, from Jobfox, reflects the professions most often targeted by employers and recruiters using (a website that connects candidates with employers) to search for and find new or replacement workers during a 120-day period ending February 21, 2008.

"These are professions that are thriving and will continue to be in demand for the foreseeable future," Rob McGovern, CEO of Jobfox, said in a press release. "While hiring activity is reportedly slow in some industry sectors --construction and manufacturing, for example--companies continue to go after a host of high-impact professions requiring degrees or specialized skills."

Here are the top 12 professions, along with the median salary ranges desired by (and as reported by) candidates for these top-ranked professions:

  1. Software Design/Development $95K-$105K
