Strong job market in Denver metro area expected in 1st quarter of 2013

The Denver economy continues to kick tail, and it looks like the first Quarter of 2013 is no different. Quoted from the Denver Post,  “from January to March, 23 percent of the companies interviewed plan to hire more employees, while eight percent expect to reduce staff. Another 66 percent expect to maintain their current workforce levels and three percent are not certain of their hiring plans.”

“Hiring activity is expected to increase during the first quarter of 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 when the Net Employment Outlook was nine percent,” said Manpower spokesperson Sunny Ackerman. “Employers also expect improved employment prospects compared with one year ago when the Net Employment Outlook was seven percent.”

Also included in the job report, the best prospects for jobs seem to be in the construction, durable goods manufacturing, non-durable goods manufacturing, transportation and utilities and wholesale and retail trade sectors.

Another great sign that the metro Denver area continues to thrive as a whole!

Go Denver Go! 🙂
