Most of the employers in New Jersey have plans to increase staffing throughout 2014 and into 2015 in many areas. Most significant are positions in freight, manual labor, and material handlers as manufacturing ramps up. Companies are requiring more and more qualified candidates for fulfillment centers for online stores that ship from this state.
Construction is another important industry here, and thanks to the boom in manufacturing, it has also opened up positions from accounting and customer service to trade and transportation. The increase in government regulation has created jobs at software development and Internet security companies, many of which have found their home here in New Jersey. Headhunters will find that there is an ample number of qualified candidates to fill these positions and make matches that are long-lasting.
