Summary/Abstract: During the transition years, the most striking and at the same time alarming process in matters of employment has been the severe decrease of the employed population. The causes that determine a process or another in thefield ofworkforce employment can be grouped into: economic causes, instituţional causes, educaţional and training causes, social causes, the management of the labour market. In thispaper we have approached mainly the educaţional and training causes, taking into account the mass privatization process of the Romanian enterprises which led to the apparition/disappearance ofqualifications, associated with big changes in the content ofjobs and qualifications. In order to know the structural or circumstanţial changes con-cerning the qualifications required on the labour market it is necessary to have an information inquiry about the qualifications and the qualification needs, which means investigations at the \ firmsfrom the town/area. To this purpose we have made a research (to be seen in a question-naire-based survey) at the level of Cluj county on a statistical population of 2736 enterprises. As a result of the research, we have elaborated the classification of the most wanted and most vul-nerablejobs specific to industry on the labour market from Cluj and we have identified the main employment difficulties. Under the actual conditions of restructuring economy in general and industry in particular we consider that the flexibility ofhuman resources represents a decisive factor for improving employment in economy in general and in industry in particular.
