Maybe you’ve been too busy watching Shark Week, celebrating the U.S. women’s soccer team win, or crying over Ben and Jennifer’s breakup (while secretly hoping he gets back together with JLo … oh wait, that’s just me?). But newsflash – half of the year has come and gone. And that means it’s time for CareerBuilder’s annual midyear forecast, which predicts hiring trends for the remainder of 2015.
Here are some of the highlights from the rosy outlook:
1. Hiring for all types of positions increasing
Whether you’re looking for a full-time, part-time or temporary/contract position, you’re in luck. Hiring is on an upswing from 2014. According to the study:
- 49 percent of employers plan to hire full-time, permanent employees in the second half of 2015, up from 47 percent last year
- 28 percent plan to hire part-time employees in the second half of 2015, up from 27 percent last year
- 34 percent plan to hire temporary or contract workers in the second half of 2015, up from 33 percent last year
