Companies Hiring This Month: December

As 2009 winds down, you can't help but realize what a roller coaster of a year it's been. No one knew what to expect coming into this year, and we constantly looked for signs that the economy would turn around.

Fortunately, we have seen some clues that the situation isn't as bad as it once was and won't get as bad as we once feared. That said, plenty of people still need to find work and need a steady income to pay bills and living expenses. The need for a paycheck is especially high during the holiday season.

Job seekers will be happy to know that many companies are still hiring new workers. While some employers haven't fared well this year, many others are booming. In fact, they're doing well in a variety of industries. For example, Alabama-based manufacturing company ThyssenKrupp Steel is not only surviving the economy -- it's thriving. Home health-care company Bayada Nurses knows that health issues don't stop for a recession, and they continue to need qualified employees to care for clients.

To simplify your job search, whether you're looking for a job in your current industry or want to try something new, we've put together a list of companies hiring right now. What better way to end your year than with a new career?
