Fourth Quarter Hiring Predictions Closely Mirror Pre-Recession Estimates

Last week CareerBuilder released the results of its Q4, 2012 Hiring Forecast, pointing to a more upbeat fourth quarter.  Twenty-six percent of employers plan to add full-time, permanent headcount in the next three months, up five percentage points from 2011 and closely mirroring pre-recession estimates.

“This is the most optimistic fourth quarter projection since 2007,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder.  “We’re seeing continued evidence of stability and growth in the U.S. job market.  A dramatic upswing in hiring is not likely to happen in the near term, but we’re setting the stage for better job creation in 2013 and beyond.”

The full results of CareerBuilder’s Q4, 2012 Hiring Forecast are available here.
