What’s the job outlook like these days?
James Sagar, CEO of The Tailored Group, says he’s “recruiting like crazy right now.”
The Atlanta-based event marketing company has openings for customer service representatives, sales representatives and marketing agents. Company officials recruit heavily in the summer to appeal to new college graduates, yet they say they are open to any applicant with the right attitude.
“We’re not just advertising for summer roles. Mainly I want to find people full time,” Sagar said.
Hiring for summer jobs is heating up. To that point, 41 percent of employers are planning on hiring seasonal workers for the summer, according to an annual survey from CareerBuilder.com. The number has picked up over the last two years.
The national survey was conducted in April and included 1,012 hiring managers and human resources professionals in the private sector and 1,117 full-time workers across industries and company sizes.
