DeVry University, headquartered in Illinois, conducted a survey of employers recently. They report that more than 81 percent across a diverse range of industries expect to increase overall hiring in the next 12 months.
Among employers who plan to hire, nearly 30 percent expect to increase their staff size by 11-25 percent; 60 percent expect to increase staff by 1-10 percent; and 7 percent say they will increase staff by up to 50 percent in the coming year. Technology skills are high on the list of jobs that will be available.
If this overall picture translates to the geospatial sciences community
then we are in for a good employment year.
