As employers grapple with a highly competitive hiring environment that is causing prolonged job vacancies across the U.S., workers will reap the benefits. According to CareerBuilder‘s ‘Midyear Job Forecast,’ a full 63 percent of employers plan to hire in the second half of 2018, up from 60 percent last year.
“We see a huge uptick in hiring this year and the number of placements we made trended much higher than the same period last year,” said Tim Tolan, managing partner and CEO of The Tolan Group. “While employers are still slow to hire in terms of the amount of time they are taking to make a decision, they are hiring more people year over year. We expect that trend to continue in the second half of 2018 as the economy is robust and CEO confidence appears to be much higher. We also anticipate a multi-year hiring frenzy as the labor pool of available qualified candidates continues to shrink.”
