Best Illinois Job Prospects in Manufacturing, Medic

  But experts say some of the positions will require higher levels of education and training and many won't pay what they did a few years ago.      

According to a survey from the staffing firm ManPower Group, 17 percent of Illinois employers plan to add staff during the first quarter. That's up 3 percent from a year earlier.    

John Challenger is CEO of the Chicago-based outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. He says, "Job creation has been relatively strong in the last two years."
