Phoenix, Ariz. --In advance of the Arizona state unemployment report, Adecco, announced it is seeing increased demand for employees in the Phoenix area, especially in the mortgage and insurance industries. Phoenix is one of the many locales across the country where Adecco is responding to a growing need for contingent workers from employers in a variety of industries.
"Mortgage industry hiring is increasing because Arizona is growing so fast, with many people moving here from out of state,” says Jodi Goulden, Adecco Regional Operations Manager in Tempe. “Interest rates are still low; therefore, the majority of new residents are buying homes rather than renting. There are also a number of new companies moving to the area.
"Job seekers should take note that Adecco is seeing demand for experienced loan processors both in refinance and new construction."
In addition to traditional temporary hiring, Adecco branches are receiving requests for temp-to-hire candidates. People who take on temp-to-hire positions can potentially parlay their temporary assignment into a full-time position. Administrative assistant, customer service and data entry positions are all in high demand from companies in the Phoenix area.
Adecco releases its "Where the Jobs Are" report in advance of the state unemployment reports to provide more depth and breadth to the employment picture in selected regions. The report is based on interviews with Adecco recruiters across the country and consists of press releases that report on hiring trends in regions experiencing employment growth. The trends in these regions are not intended to be indicators of nationwide trends.
