    Juliana,

    Financial companies looking for qualified candidates are experiencing many problems.

    The term here implies that a candidate can adequately match the criteria of a role and that they have what a company needs (even though from your sentence they appear to be in short supply!)

    2. Qualifying candidates may request access to detailed financial information.

    This term usually implies a person who is or who has just achieved a qualified status; but it would be wrong to use it in this context.
