While the unemployment rate and out-of-work contractors have taken an immediate toll on the economy, more than 38% of surveyed recruiters expect to see increases in job requirements within 90 days, according to the Recruiter Index released by Recruiter.com. And more than 22% expect those results to start in as little as 30 days.

Meanwhile, 17% expect no change.

Recruiter.com is a website that links job seekers, recruiters and employers. The index gathers data from its network of more than 20,000 small and independent recruiters to uncover critical insights into where hiring is heading.

Other key trends from the Recruiter Index include:

  • Healthcare recruiters are among the most optimistic: 45.5% predict increased job requirement loads in the next 30 days, and 54.5% predict increased job requirement loads in the next 90 days.
  • The immediate outlook is also positive for recruiters in internet/other information services: 50% predict increased job requirement loads in the next 30 days.
  • 66% of the recruiters in financial services expect demand to increase or return to normal in the next 90 days.
  • Even recruiters in hard-hit industries are more optimistic than one might expect: One-third of recruiters in food/beverage expect job requirement loads to increase within 90 days.
