College students and other seasonal workers can expect to find more jobs this summer, and get better pay.
A poll finds that 36 percent of the private sector plan to hire, compared with 30 percent summer. Hourly wages will also be up with 53 percent of employers paying more than $15 per hour, which is above the federal minimum wage of $7.25, according to the survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the job search site CareerBuilder.
Seventy-two percent of employers said they will pay about $10 or more per hour, and 77 percent said they will consider hiring seasonal workers for full-time positions.
"Many summer jobs went away completely during the recession as companies eliminated internship programs and as households cut back on vacation and recreation spending," CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson said in a statement. "We expect this year's positive outlook to carry over into full-time hiring across industries and job types."
The poll, released Wednesday, surveyed more than 2,000 full-time recruiting and human resources managers in the U.S. in February and March. The margin of error is 2.1 percentage points.
Among business sectors, 50 percent of managers in the leisure and hospitality industry planned to offer summer jobs. That was the top sector, closely followed by the financial services and IT industries.
