According to a new report form CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl., human resource positions will be some of the most sought after positions in 2014. The report said the hiring of temporary workers with an expertise in human resources will grow by 4 percent from 2013 to 64,049 jobs.

Among the other professions that pay employees in the middle-wage to high-wage range that are expected to increase include customer service representatives, construction workers, administrative assistants and registered nurses. Eric Gilpin, president of CareerBuilder's Staffing & Recruiting Group, said in a statement hiring temporary workers provide a great resource for companies.

"Coming off of a hard-hitting recession, companies want more flexibility in their workforce to quickly ramp up and ramp down their businesses as needed. Temporary workers provide that flexibility," Gilpin said. "Temporary employment is growing across industries and metros, and providing great opportunities for workers to test-drive different work experiences and network with employers."

Among cities in the U.S. that hired more than 20,000 temporary workers in 2013, several are projected to increase their number in 2014. Some of those cities include Grand Rapids, Mich., Indianapolis, Ind., and Orlando, Fla.
