Many Employers Looking to Hire this Summer, Survey Finds

Tim Boyle/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Looking for a summer job?  Well, there's good news for you.  A new report out Wednesday by CareerBuilder.com says employers in many industries are boosting their hiring plans.

"We found that 29 percent of employers say that they plan to hire temporary positions for the summer, and that is the highest number we've seen since the recession began," says Michael Erwin with CareerBuilder.

"Surprising to us was manufacturing: 45 percent of employers said they're going to bring on summer hires this season," he adds.

And as Erwin explains, some of those seasonal jobs could turn into permanent positions.

"I find that manufacturers are looking to bring on temporary help and turn those into full time help," he says.

Hotels, restaurants and retailers also plan to add workers this summer.
