Recruiting Forecast

Recruiters and hiring managers forecast modest job gains in early 2012, according to a national survey conducted by Dice Holdings Inc. released on November 28. In fact, almost half (47%) of hiring managers and recruiters surveyed said they plan additional hiring during the first half of the year. 43% of hiring professionals said that despite the economy, hiring plans have not changed; 21% are increasing hiring, and 30% are revising hiring plans downward.

“With so much uncertainty in the air when it comes to the economy and job creation, it’s a surprisingly positive sign that nearly half of respondents are optimistic about hiring at the start of 2012,” said Scot Melland, chairman, president and CEO of Dice Holdings. “Although modest in size, we’ve added private-sector jobs for 20 months now, and that modest job growth looks set to continue. We need to focus on removing any hurdles that impede companies from investing in America’s talent.” (more…)
