A good summer job outlook is in store for Salt Lake area employers and employees. No employer participating in a survey by Manpower Inc. plans to reduce its staff.
Robert Katz, a Manpower spokesman, said 34 percent of the businesses surveyed for July, August and September said they planned to add employees and 66 percent said they were standing pat with their current payroll."Companies contacted about hiring plans three months ago were more reserved, when 23 percent expected to add personnel and 6 percent were prepared for cutbacks," Katz said. A year ago, 29 percent expected to add people and 10 percent expected to have fewer employees.
For the July-September period, job opportunities are seen in mining, durable goods manufacturing, transportation/public utilities, wholesale/retail trade, education and public administration.
