Administrative jobs in San Antonio climb

Friday, October 7th, 2016

A new survey from Careerbuilder shows that administrative jobs in San Antonio may be growing.

According to CareerBuilder’s Q4 2016 U.S. Job Forecast, 47 percent of employers expect to increase pay for seasonal workers in Q4. Of those hiring seasonal employees, 75 percent will pay $10 or more per hour, up from 72 percent last year, and nearly 3 in 10 (28 percent) expect to pay $16 or more per hour, up from 19 percent last year.

 

One-third of employers (33 percent) expect to hire seasonal workers in Q4, the same as last year. An increasing number of these employers are viewing seasonal hiring as a means to test-drive candidates for more permanent roles. Sixty-two percent expect to hire some of their seasonal staff for full-time positions, up from 57 percent last year and a big leap from 42 percent two years ago.

While a significant number of employers will be increasing staff to meet demands of the busier holiday season, others are focused on wrapping up 2016 or getting ready for the New Year. Companies across industries are hiring seasonal workers for:

  • Customer Service – 37 percent
  • Administrative/Clerical Support – 19 percent
  • Accounting/Finance – 16 percent
  • Inventory Management – 16 percent
  • Shipping and Delivery – 16 percent
  • Technology – 15 percent
  • Marketing – 13 percent
  • Sales (non-retail) – 13 percent
  • Hosting/Greeting – 13 percent

Thirty-eight percent of employers added full-time, permanent headcount in Q3, relatively unchanged from 39 percent last year. Ten percent decreased headcount, on par with last year, while 50 percent made no change and 1 percent was unsure.
