Earlier in the year, Fortune provided their list of the Best Companies to Work For. When the list came out in January, we looked at hiring demand at their top 10 companies. Now that we are about half way through the year, we wanted to provide an update on recent job postings.
Here are the top 10 companies on Fortune's list for 2013:
- CHG Healthcare Service
- The Boston Consulting Group, Inc.
- Wegman's Food Markets, Inc.
- Hilcorp Energy Company
- Edward Jones
- Ultimate Software
- Camden Property Trust
In May 2013, there were about 10,000 jobs available at these 10 companies, marking a 4% year-over-year increase in demand. While demand had declined at these companies at the beginning of 2013, there has been a recent increase in hiring during April and May. While Google led these companies in hiring at the beginning of the year, Edward Jones had the most ads available online in May.
Hiring Demand at Fortune's 10 Best Companies to Work For – 4 Year Hiring Trend
Below are the 10 occupations that were most in-demand during May 2013. With Edward Jones posting the most job ads, it's not surprising that Personal Financial Advisors were the most commonly advertised occupation. Almost 3,000 unique positions were advertised during the month of May, a 12% year-over-year increase. Other jobs that experienced increases from last year were First-line Supervisors of Office and Administrative Workers, Customer Service Representatives, Sales Agents of Securities and Commodities, Combined Food Preparation and Service Workers, and First-line Supervisors of Retail Sales Workers. Occupations that declined from may 2012 were Sales Agents of Financial Services, Applications Software Developers, Marketing Managers, and IT Project Managers. It's interesting that many of these jobs with declining demand were technology related, which are in high demand across the US and other companies.
