Clarity, a Top Ten Recruiting Firm in New York, has noticed a significant improvement during this summer compared to summer 2012’s hiring numbers. As positions continue to open, Clarity continues to be the ultimate resource for employers and job seekers alike.

As summer 2013 comes to a close, top notch recruiting firm, Clarity, announces that hiring trends were and continue to increase from summer 2012’s unemployment numbers.

A recent Forbes article stated that employers added 169,000 jobs in August and unemployment was at 7.3%. Though the numbers aren’t quite what economists predicted, the numbers still represent growth and Clarity has seen improvement with their revenue numbers from this past July, doubling July 2012.

“We have seen significant growth in new assignments, the duration of assignments, and conversions to permanent positions,” said partner Moira Dorst. “It is very encouraging for 2014!”

Clarity has noticed a staggering improvement with the conversion of temporary to permanent positions from this year compared to last year. “Seeing an increase in permanent positions is incredible for job seekers,” says Dorst, Managing Partner at Clarity. “This means not only are there more jobs opening up, but also that employers are becoming much more secure and confident that this isn’t a temporary influx in the market and the positions are here to stay.”

Though unemployment and hiring numbers might not be what experts hoped, they are still steadily improving according to Clarity who has a direct relationship with employers and job seekers.

The Forbes article also mentioned that the unemployment percentage also represents a number of people who get discouraged from the job hunt. Staffing agencies like Clarity provide excellent job seeker resources like interview workshops, an online forum called “Ask Anne” where candidates can get their questions personally answered and a wide network of job postings with companies all over New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area and Richmond, Virginia/Washington D.C.
