Employers Scouting for Full-Time, Lower-Level Employees

Ninety percent of U.S. hiring decision-makers say their company plans to hire employees in key departments through the end of the year, according to a survey of 1,003 hiring decision-makers by Express Employment Professionals. Information technology and technology support (29%), customer service (26%), general labor (25%), and sales (25%) are among the top jobs. Hiring managers most commonly plan to hire full-time employees (84%), either hourly (59%) or salaried (48%). Interest in hiring full-time employees has been steadily increasing since the first half of 2020.

Mid-level (55%) and entry-level (52%) jobs are the biggest categories of open jobs. Around three in 10 companies plan to hire senior-level employees (31%), about a quarter individual contributors (26%), and a fifth C-suite executives (20%). More than half of hiring managers (51%) say their company plans to hire recent college graduates to fill the entry or mid-level jobs. A quarter of hiring managers (24%) say their company plans to hire seasonal, temporary, or contract workers, up from 20% in 2021.
