More manpower needed in HR departments

Posted on May 17th, 2012 Read time: 1 minutes

Human resource departments may be more burdened than usual in the coming months, as the graduation of college students creates a bevy of new applicants looking for jobs.

In these cases, it may be beneficial for companies to use HR outsourcing services to handle the impending rush. By doing so, the company can focus on more pressing matters.

"A lot of time and attention from management and HR professionals goes into hiring a new candidate," said Kristen Harisay, president of proHR. "By outsourcing this function they can focus their attention on broader issues the company is facing, while an outside expert takes care of finding quality candidates."

On the other side of the coin, 2012 graduates may find the job market to be far less harsh than its been since the recession started. The news source cites a National Association of Colleges and Employers survey which found that employers expect to hire 10 percent more new college graduates in 2012 compared to 2011 – the second consecutive year hiring projects have increased.

Fox News adds that 3.1 million jobs have been created in the past year and a half, a marked improvement from the 6.9 million positions that were eliminated between September 2008 and August 2010.
