Job Prospects to Remain Stable in Q4

October 4, 2013 – One in four employers plan to add full-time, permanent headcount in the fourth quarter, relatively unchanged from last year, according to CareerBuilder's latest job forecast. Industries expected to outpace the national average for companies hiring include information technology (36 percent), financial services (32 percent) and manufacturing (30 percent). Hiring among large healthcare organizations is expected to mirror the national average. “Consistent hiring has been the theme throughout this jobs recovery,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “Economic concerns are still looming. Some headlines in the news need to play themselves out before employers fully mobilize to create a more active job market. Companies will continue to produce an even stream of new jobs in the fourth quarter as they assess their positioning and prospects for the coming year.”
