Summer jobs pay off this year with higher wages

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A report released last week by CareerBuilder predicts plentiful pay and positions this summer. More than half of employers are offering summer jobs paying an hourly wage of $15 or more, and 72 percent are planning to pay $10 or more per hour to summer workers.

More than three-quarters of summer employers say they will consider seasonal help for permanent positions. Overall, 36 percent of private sector employers are planning to hire summer help.

The hospitality and leisure industries lead in summer-hiring expectations and IT firms and financial services are also showing strong hiring trends for seasonal workers.

The CareerBuilder study was conducted by Harris Poll and included hiring and human resources managers from a variety of company sizes and industries only in the United States.
