• Technology, customer service and sales are the top three areas in which employers expect to add jobs first once the economy rebounds.

• The average time to fill open positions, depending on the job level, is 4.5 to 14.4 weeks, the same time range as last year.

• Despite an abundant labor pool, six in 10 employers are willing to negotiate with qualified candidates for higher compensation.

• More than half of employees polled plan to make a career change or go back to school when the economy recovers.

• Forty per cent of hiring managers said that when the economy improves, giving pay raises will be their primary method for retaining top performers.
