Good afternoon Scott.

I found your article very interesting and focused on positions that, as you mentionned, are still "off the radar" of staffing firms. However, could you tell me where I could get the information that was used to establish the increase of 211% for the Forensic Science Technicians? Thank you.

These roles are often found within the government. And you'll also find these roles at insurance companies, risk management firms, and some banking institutions.
