Twenty-one percent of employers plan to add full-time staff in the upcoming third quarter compared with 18% who said they hired staff in the third quarter of 2009, according to the quarterly job forecast survey from CareerBuilder and USA Today.
Eight percent expect to cut staff in the third quarter compared with 15% who cut staff in the same period last year.
For the entire second half of this year, 41% of employers plan to hire, according to the survey.
"Employers began recruiting at a moderate, but consistent pace in the first half of 2010 as confidence levels inched upward amidst a better global financial picture," said CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson. "The economic recovery has broadened, but employers remain guarded. The survey indicates that we'll see sustainable new job growth through the remainder of the year, but it will be absent of any dramatic shifts."
The survey questioned 2,500 hiring managers and human resources professionals.
