Help Wanted: Obviously, the job market is miserable, but according to Manpower Inc., there are some jobs that are still tough to fill. 

 "In the four years we have performed this research, the same positions appear on the list again and again. Despite the current economic instability and high unemployment, there are still skills that the workforce seems to lack," said Jonas Prising, president of Manpower's Americas division. Manpower is a staffing company based in Milwaukee. Its outplacement division, Right Management, is headquartered here in Philadelphia.

So, here are the top jobs:

1. Engineering

2. Nurses

3. Skilled/manual trades

4. Teachers

5. Sales representatives

6. Technicians

7. Drivers

8. IT staff

9. Laborers

10. Machinists, machine operators.
