Employers expect steady spring hiring
Hiring is expected to remain on a steady course over the next three months, according to CareerBuilder’s latest job forecast. Twenty-six percent of employers plan to increase full-time, permanent headcount in Q2, on par with the previous two quarters, but trending below Q2 estimates last year. While the U.S. job market has been moving in a positive direction—each year in the recovery improving upon the previous one—employers are waiting to see how government spending cuts, health care reform, debt restructuring in Europe and other issues will play out before intensifying their hiring efforts.
