The current prospects for employment in America are cloudy, if not downright ugly.
But even though at InvestorPlace we concur that it’s a scary time to be scoping new job opportunities — it’s actually a scary time even for those who have a job — we also don’t deem the jobs outlook hopeless. Indeed, scores of solid companies in America are experiencing hiring booms.
Out of these companies, we’ve selected seven to highlight that are hiring right now. Not only are these companies currently looking for new workers, they haven’t engaged in massive layoffs within the past year.
We’re not saying these companies are synonymous with job security. Such guarantees no longer exist; we get that. At least one company on this list might even raise a few eyebrows. However, at the time of this writing, each showed signs of aggressive hiring plans, organic growth and solid operating practices. So, their employees have as good a hope as any that they’re working at a company with a little staying power.
Our baker’s half-dozen range from giants to upstarts and span a variety of industries. Here, in alphabetical order, are seven employers that are hiring now.
