West Valley Staffing Group: Silicon Valley Expecting Continued Strong Hiring Levels In Q2
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Silicon Valley hiring levels are expected to maintain strong through the second quarter of the year. According to the latest West Valley Staffing Group Economic Survey, employers from the greater part of Silicon Valley look forward to rising hiring levels.
Each quarter, West Valley Staffing Group (WVSG) surveys a range of Silicon Valley hiring managers about their upcoming hiring needs. The hiring managers come from several industries, including high tech, manufacturing, electronics, finance, semiconductor, medical, aerospace, and alternative energy.
