The forecast is in – U.S. employers share hiring plans for the third quarter

To develop one of the most trusted surveys of employment activity in the world, every quarter, we ask more than 11,500 hiring managers about their hiring plans. This helps us identify the strongest and weakest metropolitan areas, states and industries for hiring and job creation. We’re pleased to share the results of this research with you in a variety of useful formats so you can get an advanced look into hiring plans for the next quarter.
