Companies Hiring This Month: November

hiringThis month Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, which has become synonymous with spending time with relatives, eating too much food and napping midday. Of course, the underlying purpose of the day is to be grateful for what you have. Accordingly, many families preface their Thanksgiving meals by asking each person at the table to say what he or she is thankful for.

In this period of high unemployment, many people are grateful to have a job. And for job seekers looking for the right opportunity, you can be thankful that many employers are hiring right now across many industries. While some employers have been forced to scale back on bringing in new talent, others need employees now more than ever to thrive. Such is the case for Medical Staffing Network.

"The health care sector continues to hire with emphasis on temporary staffing," says vice president of marketing Jackie Nelson. "Over the past months, we have seen a rise in the demand for temporary RNs and allied health care professionals for all types of health care settings, including hospital, outpatient centers, clinics, long term care and correctional facilities." The H1N1 outbreak and regular flu season have also increased the demand of health care professionals.

"Health care job seekers can expect an increase in opportunities that traditionally occur following a recovering economy," Nelson says. "The flexibility to work full or part time, and the diversity of assignments offered with a temporary staffing agency, remain strong benefits for our employees."

As you will see from the following list, health care continues to be a strong industry for hiring. However, employers in retail, technology and several other industries need qualified employees, too. The success of their businesses -- especially in today's tough climate -- relies on their talent.

To make your job search easier, here is a list of 25 companies hiring workers right now and just a few of the many positions they're looking to fill.
