Looking for a job? How about venturing into the insurance industry? The folks there are hiring.

According to a report by GreatInsuranceJobs.com, a sampling of competitors in the industry will be trying to fill some 22,500 jobs between now and year-end. But finding the right fit for the job won't be easy. Those who responded to the survey said that budget restrictions are hampering their recruiting efforts, and there aren't enough top performers out there anyway to satisfy their needs.

Nonetheless, this year has all the earmarks of an insurance hiring frenzy. The survey found there were 7,262 jobs open at the 78 companies included in the survey, and managers at those companies said they anticipated that another 15,354 positions would come open before year-end. More than eight in 10 of the companies reported having current openings.
