It will be easier to find a job in Wisconsin than in other parts of the country over the next three months. That’s according to the quarterly survey of employers by Milwaukee’s Manpower Incorporated. Twenty-six percent of Wisconsin companies surveyed plan to add workers from July through September.
Only five percent expect layoffs and when you subtract the layoff percentage from the hiring percentage, it creates a net job outlook of 21 percent.
Nationally, only a 15 percent net job outlook is expected, with 21 percent of 18,000 U.S. firms adding positions in the next quarter.
For the next quarter, Wisconsin is tied with Michigan for the nation’s seventh-best job outlook. The four-county Milwaukee metro area ranks number one among 100 metros for the best job prospects in the fall.
