Albany businesses hiring more

June 14, 2005

Albany - Good news for job seekers, some Albany employers are expected to hire this summer. A study by Manpower says 17% of companies, in Albany, plan to hire more employees. None of the 30 companies surveyed plan to cut jobs.

Most of the new jobs are in construction and retail. Albany's job market isn't as good as the rest of the nation, according to this survey. 31% of U.S. employers expect to add workers over July, August and September.

Manpower found companies are hiring new workers on an as-needed basis, but aren't ready to ramp up staffing until demand for their products and services requires that.
