Employers Are Expanding Summer Hiring, Surveys Show

​Employers are planning increases in seasonal summer head count, according to two recently released surveys.

Forty-one percent of employers told CareerBuilder that they plan to hire seasonal workers this summer, a significant jump from 29 percent in 2016. The national survey was conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder between February and March and included representative samples of 2,587 full-time employers and 3,420 full-time workers.

In the other survey, 67 percent of 1,000 hiring managers surveyed by hourly jobs marketplace Snagajob, based in Richmond, Va., said they anticipate hiring more summer workers than last year.

Seventy-four percent of employers with hourly jobs available plan to have all positions filled by the end of May, according to the survey.

CareerBuilder reported that 31 percent of employers have already hired their summer staff, and another 34 percent said they typically complete their hiring in May. Twenty percent expect to finish hiring in June, 9 percent in July and another 7 percent in August.

The CareerBuilder survey found that of those who are hiring summer workers, 34 percent are hiring a friend, 30 percent a family member and 19 percent their child. FULL ARTICLE
