Valley holiday hiring jumps from 2011

This year is a better holiday season than last for those who are in the job market.

Theresa Maher with said employers are feeling better about the economy, leading to a jump in hiring for temporary jobs, which could result in more people landing permanent jobs.

“There is a huge opportunity for these job seekers to go out and find these temporary jobs and have them turn into full-time positions far past the first of the year,” she said.

While the numbers are still being computed, Maher said the 2012 hiring numbers could be up to 10 percent more than those of 2011.

Maher also said big spending on Black Friday and Cyber Monday showed that consumers feel more confident in the economy.
