Some good news for job-seekers as a recent survey shows “an upbeat hiring climate” for the fourth quarter of this year.
The Manpower Group survey shows 17% of local employers plan to hire for the October-to-December quarter, while 80% plan to maintain their staffing levels.
The other 3% of respondents said they did “anticipate cutbacks”.
If you remove seasonal variations in the data, the Belleville-area sees a six percentage point increase in net employment outlook, compared to the third quarter.
It’s also a 10 percentage point jump from the fourth quarter of 2017.
