A new report from CareerBuilder is very encouraging in the way of hiring for the coming year. If you are in job-search mode this is good news. According to their latest results from a survey they did regarding job forecasting, companies are planning to not only hire more but also to do better work in the area of retention and rewards, particularly for high performers (which is why you want to be one).
Here are the areas where hiring is predicted to increase:
- Customer service—32 percent
- Information technology—29 percent
- Production—24 percent
- Administrative—20 percent
- Marketing—18 percent
- Business development—16 percent
- Human resources—16 percent
- Accounting/finance—15 percent
- Engineering—13 percent
Forty-two percent of larger companies plan to hire more while twenty seven percent of smaller companies plan to do so. If you work in any of these industries you have more opportunity: healthcare (43%), financial services (46%) or information technology (IT) (44%). Another fact from the report is good news for high school and college students as 25% of those surveyed stated that they would offer internship opportunities.
Time to dust off that resume and get prepared to apply for your next career opportunity!
