According to the latest employment data from The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), the marketing and media sector is suffering from a talent shortage. Actual job openings grew by 1% pointing to an on-going scarcity of available candidates. While this is partly being plugged by the professional temporary market which has shown increases in job openings and placements of 4% and 8% respectively, it appears that for the marketing and media sector, the war for talent is very much alive and well.
