According to industry trend research from job board giant, CareerBuilder, a larger number of hiring managers are expecting to utilize the services of a staffing firm in the third quarter of 2009 as compared to the usage ratio that transpired in the second quarter. More specifically, hiring managers at large organizations, those with 500 or more employees, anticipate a nine percent increase in the number of temporary or contract employees they engage through a staffing firm in the third quarter. That's a small but positive increase from the Q2 numbers. However, these large corporations noted that the number of permanent placements made through staffing firms would remain relatively level.
When broken down by vertical markets, there is good news for those in the IT industry. CareerBuilder's industry trends reports found that temp and contract positions in the IT industry would show marked positive improvement with increased growth of approximately nine percent.
