New Survey Reveals Uptick in Hiring for Temporary Employment

There’s a dose of good news to share. According to a CareerBuilder survey, employers revealed that temporary and contract hiring will increase by the end of this calendar year to the tune of 10 percent compared to last year. Technically temporary work made up 15 percent of hiring the past four years — not too shabby!

Plus, employers revealed that full-time permanent hiring through the end of December will match last year’s full-time hiring numbers. So, if you’re currently looking for employment definitely keep contract work in mind. Keep all of your options open especially as employees take summer vacations; opportunities could be ripe for short-term gigs. In a press release, Matt Ferguson indicated, “The projected surge in temporary hiring from July to December is evidence of both a growing confidence in the market and a recession-induced hesitation to immediately place more permanent hires on the books.”

The CareerBuilder CEO added, “However, the overall pace of permanent hiring is stronger today in various industries and geographies, and will continue on a path of gradual improvement for the remainder of the year.”
