As webve mentioned on the blog before, the bleak unemployment situation is one factor in slowing down the nationbs—and commercial real estatebs—recovery. So we were happy to see CareerBuilderbs annual job forecast show that more hiring managers and HR professionals in a variety of fields plan to bring more employees onboard in 2011. From the press release:

“More than half of employers reported they are in a better financial position today than they were one year ago,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “2011 will usher in a healthier employment picture as business leaders grow more confident in the economy. Our survey indicates more jobs will be added in 2011 than 2010, but job creation will remain gradual. The year will be characterized by steady, measured gains across various industries.”
