As the unemployment rate continues to drop and more people find work, one might expect the number of job vacancies to decline.

It turns out that the opposite is true.

A recent job vacancy survey conducted by the Oregon Employment Department revealed that about 32,000 positions statewide remain unfilled as of the fall of 2013.
