A recent survey of 390 former and current clients of Express Employment Professionals provides a glance into which sectors and departments anticipate hiring (and which don’t) in the second quarter of 2016.
According to respondents, the top three sectors expecting the most hiring are:
- Industrial – 46%
- Administrative – 13 %
- Engineering – 10%
When asked which departments expect to do the most hiring, respondents answered:
- Production – 36%
- Sales – 30%
- Logistics – 9%
It was also revealed that accounting, human resources, legal, and risk departments have no plans to hire in the second quarter. Furthermore, respondents reported accounting as the only department in which there were plans to eliminate positions.
As you go about your job search, keep these numbers in mind. Industrial jobs or those focused on production or sales may prove more fruitful for job seekers in the next few months.
