Michigan Hiring Outlook
From today's Great Lakes IT Report, the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey shows that in the southeast Michigan market, a net five percent of employers plan to add staff in the 3rd quarter of 2008. This is below the net 16% of companies nationwide that plan on hiring for the quarter, which is down from the same period one year ago. Michigan overall is still lagging with 10% planning on additional hiring. Unfortunately we cannot break out the IT industry from those numbers, but it shows the overall employment trends.
