The jobs report is showing that our major categories of retail and restaurants are holding steady, if not experiencing a little growth
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Snagajob reported retail job ads placed in June 2012 on their Career Website saw a nationwide increase of 8% over May 2012. Employers added an additional 8600 jobs in June for a total of 109,525 job opportunities. States that saw the biggest increase in retail job ads were AL, AZ, DE, GA, KY, LA, MI, NM, NY, RI, TX and WV.
In a recent Snagajob poll of 300 hourly employers, almost two-thirds (64 percent) labeled themselves “optimistic” about hourly hiring in the second quarter. “The jobs report is showing that our major categories of retail and restaurants are holding steady, if not experiencing a little growth,” said Rick Parker, senior vice president of marketing for Snagajob. “Therefore, despite some larger concerns about the job market, it’s logical that our hiring managers are indicating that they’re feeling good and plan to hire this quarter. We also know that some are still completing summer hiring needs, a positive factor affecting the second quarter.”
