The recent slowdown in hiring may have caused some Americans who are looking for work to shudder. But a new survey of employers suggests that the summer months may give dispirited job seekers a much-needed boost.

According to data compiled by ManpowerGroup, 92 percent of U.S. employers plan to increase hiring or maintain current staffing levels through the end of September.

The staffing company's latest Employment Outlook Survey also shows that hiring trends are up in all 50 states, and in all of the 100 metropolitan areas surveyed.
