Geoffrey Hoffmann, CEO of DHR International – a recruiting firm responsible for placing C-level executives — shares with us his employment projections for the coming year.
"My views aren't that of an economist, but I do get a sense from the dialogue that we have with senior leaders," Hoffmann told us. "Some industries are more well-positioned than others."
Here's Hoffman's projections:
"There was some uncertainty before the election if the healthcare legislation will be appealed or not," Hoffmann said. "But now a lot of healthcare companies and hospitals know what they need to do to plan."
Therefore, hiring is expected to rise.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the healthcare and social assistance industry is expected to generate the "largest number of jobs, 5.6 million, at an annual rate of 3.0 percent" between now to 2020.
