Will employers be hiring for San Antonio jobs?

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

Some employers may be hiring for San Antonio jobs in the new quarter, according to a recent survey from Careerbuilder.

CareerBuilder’s annual forecast shows that 44 percent of employers plan to hire full-time, permanent employees in the New Year and half (51 percent) will hire temporary employees.

Forty-five percent of HR managers currently have jobs they cannot fill because they cannot find qualified talent and 58 percent report that they have jobs that stay open for 12 weeks or longer.

The amount of employers planning to hire full-time, permanent staff in the New Year was similar to last year, increasing four percentage points from 40 percent in 2017 to 44 percent in 2018. Six percent of employers expect a decline in staff levels in 2018, an improvement from 8 percent last year. Forty-five percent anticipated no change while 5 percent were unsure.

While employers say functions such as customer service, sales, information technology and production will top their list for full-time, permanent hiring in 2018, they also pointed to other key areas where they will be adding headcount:

  • Jobs tied to skilled labor – 30 percent
  • Jobs tied to data analysis – 25 percent
  • Jobs tied to digital marketing – 17 percent
  • Jobs tied to cybersecurity – 15 percent
  • Jobs tied to automation – 12 percent
  • Jobs tied to artificial intelligence and machine learning – 10 percent
