A recent Careerbuilder job forecast shows that companies are hiring for mobile technology jobs in San Antonio.

he U.S. hiring outlook for the next six months is expected to mirror the same period in 2015 — but paychecks will likely become a little bigger — according to CareerBuilder’s Midyear Job Forecast. More than half of employers will raise wages for current employees while 2 in 5 will offer higher starting salaries on job offers in the second half of the year.

 

Looking across all industries, 1 in 6 employers (16 percent) said they plan to hire more recruiters in the next six months to help bring new talent in the door. Some of the in-demand roles employers said they will be recruiting for in the second half of the year are those tied to:

  • Cloud technology – 12 percent
  • Mobile technology – 11 percent
  • Social marketing – 11 percent
  • Providing a good user experience – 11 percent
  • Developing apps – 9 percent
  • Wellness – 9 percent
  • E-commerce – 9 percent
  • Financial regulation – 9 percent
  • Creating a digital strategy – 9 percent
  • Managing and interpreting Big Data – 8 percent
  • Cyber security – 8 percent

Among broader functional areas, employers will be hiring for:

  • Customer Service – 29 percent
  • Sales – 27 percent
  • Information Technology – 25 percent
  • Production – 20 percent

  • Human Resources – 13 percent
  • Clinical – 12 percent
  • Business Development – 11 percent
  • Marketing – 11 percent
  • Research and Development – 11 percent

In addition to reporting the largest year-over-year gain for the percentage of employers expecting to add full-time, permanent staff, the West is also outpacing the other regions. The Northeast is the only region that reported a decline — though is still near the national average for hiring — while the Midwest continues to lag the national average. Hiring in the South will be akin to last year and match the national average.

  • West – 53 percent hiring, up from 46 percent last year
