68 Percent of Firms Hiring in Next Six Months

About 68 percent of companies surveyed this month by search firm Mergis Group said they would be hiring in the next six months.

The lion's share, or two-thirds of them, indicated that recruiting would be for financial and accounting personnel, reports Fins.com. About 98 percent of the hires would be full-time permanent employees.

This shows that the entire economy is not mutating into one of free agents or contract workers without any security, benefits, or even a nameplate on their cubicle.
