Tapping Into The Hidden Job Market

Financial Woes Spur Some Short-term Hiring

While millions of jobs are being lost in the abysmal economy, a lower-profile trend involves companies – especially smaller ones – hiring temporary workers in response to the crisis.

Employers that are determined to keep fixed-staffing costs at a bare minimum may need to expand their work forces from time to time, as dictated by, say, short-term spikes that might reflect the demands of a particular client or customer. Some companies, being extra careful about full-time hiring that might not be worth the investment, find it appealing to first try employees out, with no obligation. For other firms, extraordinary human-capital needs may arise out of structural changes to their businesses or other special circumstances driven by the recession.
