Experts Predict a Hiring Boom in 2013 (Hilarious!)
US News and World Report ^ | December 20, 2012 | David Francis

Hiring is expected to pick up in the New Year, according to career counselors, but uncertainty surrounding the strength of the economy will likely prevent the hiring season from being as robust as in years past.

Last month, the economy added 146,000 jobs, well beyond the expected 85,000 experts predicted. And a strong holiday shopping season is buoying hopes that December will beat expectations as well.

"Historically, the first quarter of any fiscal year is always the best time to expect hires because of the normal cycle of business," says Robert Meier, president of Job Market Experts, a Florida-based firm that helps match job seekers with openings. "Companies are kind of lying low, but now is the time when they do the talent evaluation. If you can get into the evaluation cycle, you have a good chance of getting hired."

But Philip Noftsinger, business unit president for CBIZ Payroll, Inc., and creator of the CBIZ Small Business Employment Index, doesn't expect hiring in 2013 to match the employment hikes that have occurred during past economic recoveries. He says uncertainty about the impact of politicians on the recovery and the inability of job seekers to properly market themselves will delay many jobs from being filled. The outcome of the fiscal cliff—the tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect at the end of the year—is also directly tied to the state of the job market.

"If we don't reach compromise [on the cliff], I think you're looking at demand-driven hiring," he says, meaning that hiring will depend on consumer demand rather than a company's long-term plan to grow...

So, if there ISN’T a “hiring boom” in 2013 it will be “unexpected”?

Where the eff in the country are these 100’s of 1000’s of people being hired?
Here in the midwest I know of many people who have been unable to find work for 2 or 3 years.

These monthly numbers have got to be 99% bogus made up nonsense and have got to be made up for the past 4 years, instead of just 50% made up like they would be under a republican.

Ole Red Neck can’t put together the whole picture, but he’s hearing that more than half of these jobs are government goon posts that Obamacare calls for.

Let me guess, most will be low-wage service industry jobs.

I wonder if they predicted any of those jobs to be here in California, because all I see are business and people leaving the great state of taxifornia. The liberal morons here seem to only want working people to give up all their wages in taxes so that the state can reallocate those funds to the illegals. I am disgusted that illegals are given in state tuition and aid while American citizens are hosed, and that is just the tip of the sh*tberg in this state.

The economy here seems better than most places. Not 2004, by any means, but not terrible.
