The Companies Hiring The Most Right Now

"Even as the U.S. economy struggles to emerge from last year’s recession, many large businesses are growing enough to hire hundreds of new employees. Forbes and Indeed.com, a website that aggregates job listings from online classifieds and company websites, compiled a list of the 10 companies with more than 2,500 employees that have the most job postings right now."

Almost all ten are health care or government contractors.

postings are meaningless. Companies often play the game of trying to be the good citizen to the state, showing that they're hiring. They post many jobs, but never respond or hire for the positions.

If they were hiring 50,000 each, then it'd be interesting. But a thousand or so each seems like they're just keeping up with retirements plus maybe a few extra.

If governments were included, I bet the top 10 would all be governments.

Actually according to all reports gov is laying people off far faster than it is hiring. (See reports of Teachers and Police layoffs for details). Of course if you are a consultant you get a job because there are never enough studies of things, we would rather study things than do things. No study concludes without recommendation that further studies be done, one can study a problem until the sun melts the earth in 5 billion years and never do anything about it. Alternative reduce consultants doing studies to minimum wage!

Lyle, some governments are cutting, just like some companies are cutting. But it seems unlikely that all governments are cutting and have as few as 1,000 listed openings. The feds for one don't have just a few thousand job listings.

Also, jobs listings don't mean there aren't cuts elsewhere in the company, just as governments may have many jobs listed while they're firing people elsewhere.
