MILWAUKEE, June 12 (UPI) -- A global survey shows a decidedly mixed bag of third quarter hiring expectations, U.S. employment firm Manpower Inc. said Tuesday.
The survey comes into focus country by country. Hiring in Germany, the largest economy in Europe, is expected to "lose steam" in the third quarter, Manpower said.
India and Turkey, however, appear to be two of the right places for job seekers to be.
"The hiring boom should continue in India with the market experiencing the repatriation of talent from Europe and North America as Indian nationals return to take advantage of opportunity -- and perhaps more security -- at home," said Jeffrey Joerres, chairman and chief executive officer of Manpower Group in a statement.
In the United States, "there are more opportunities for job seekers with the right skills," he said, noting two years of "steady improvement" had not yet resulted in "meaningful job creation."
Manpower found "the strongest third-quarter forecasts coming from employers in India, Taiwan, Brazil, Turkey and Singapore."
In general, hiring activity is expect to be stable or improved in 32 countries and territories in the third quarter compared to the second, while activity "weakens" in 16.
Compared to the same period a year earlier, however, job prospects are expected to decline in 26 locations and improve or hold steady in 19.
The survey reflected the business headlines of recent months with hiring expected to be weakest around the globe in Greece, Ireland, Spain, Italy and Hungary, countries that have struggled to stay out of default since the nearly worldwide economic downturn that began in 2007.
