Top Hiring Predictions for the Rest of 2023

The end of the year is nigh, which is a fancy way of saying that it's almost time to don your 2024 glasses and set your New Year's resolutions.

What does the end of the year mean for you, dear job seeker? You might be worried that the approaching holidays will slow down the hiring process, and you might not be wrong. So let us *try to set your mind at ease with some hopeful hiring predictions for the rest of 2023.

According to a report from Manpower Group, which surveyed employees across 41 countries, the countries with the highest hiring intentions include Costa Rica, Brazil, and Switzerland.

The industries with the most promising hiring outlook are (in this order):

  • Information technology
  • Financials and Real Estate
  • Communications Services
  • Healthcare and Life Sciences
  • Energy and Utilities

The good news is that there are social impact positions throughout these industries, whether you want to run communications for a nonprofit or dive into the renewable energy sector.

More good news for those making a mid-life career change: the report shows that employers are more willing to hire older candidates making a big pivot. In general, there seems to be more flexibility for gaps in your resume if you stepped away to be a caretaker or have a non-linear career path.

If you think the end of the year is a bad time to look for a new job, think again friendo. First, the holidays offer a great excuse to reach out to some old connections and lay some good ole networking groundwork.

Next, as most people slack off on sending in applications towards the end of the year, your competition will be lower.

If anything, the end of the year is a great time to spruce up your resume and sharpen your cover letter skills so that you can stand out in 2024. Now get back to it - countdown's on!
