The job market will remain strong for the latter part of 2022, research from talent-solutions and business-consulting firm Robert Half shows.
According to the company’s State of U.S. Hiring Survey of more than 1,500 managers, 46 percent of respondents anticipate adding new permanent positions during the second half of the year; 46 percent expect to fill vacated positions and only 8 percent foresee hiring freezes or layoffs.
Increased demand for contract and early career talent About 45 percent of managers across practice areas plan to bring in more contract professionals by year-end — especially in technology (60 percent) and finance and accounting (54 percent). In addition, 72 percent of employers intend to hire more entry-level or early-career professionals.
