The latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics may have been a letdown, kind of like the initial ratings for the highly anticipated “Scream Queens” premiere. But just like how the new Ryan Murphy show bounced back, it looks like hiring may be looking up this quarter, according to CareerBuilder’s Q4 2015 hiring forecast.
Keep reading for the top five takeaways from the latest hiring survey – and what these findings mean for you.
1. Full-time, permanent hiring up
The survey found that 34 percent of employers plan to add full-time, permanent employees in Q4, up from 29 percent in 2014 and 25 percent in 2013. This is the healthiest hiring prediction for full-time jobs since 2006.
What this means for you: Oftentimes, full-time, permanent hiring activity slows down at the end of the year as companies prepare their budgets for the new year – but that doesn’t seem to be the case here. So if you’re looking to get a new job, don’t think you need to wait until 2016 to ramp up your search. Start now, and get ahead of the competition who may be waiting until after the holidays to job hunt.
