Manpower projects winter hiring increase

November 25, 2002

Winter holds pleasant promise for Hagerstown-area job seekers, according to the First Quarter Employment Outlook Survey by Manpower Inc.

"In our survey of hiring intentions for the January/February/March period, 17 percent of the firms queried plan staffing level increases, 3 percent project reductions and 80 percent expect no changes during the winter months," Bob Jeffers of Manpower said.

Wintertime employment opportunities are foreseen in durable and nondurable goods manufacturing and wholesale/retail trade. Construction firms plan reductions. Other sectors are expected to remain unchanged.
