22 companies hiring in large volume

Pin It

During President Barack Obama’s recent State of the Union speech, he went to great lengths to emphasize the importance of job creation in the U.S. Even if this wasn’t an election year, you’d be hearing a lot of talk from politicians and the media about job growth. Although we’ve seen an upward trend of job creation in the past two years, the workforce is still reeling from the recession.

Although the job market has changed for job seekers, some things are still the same. Workers want to find jobs that they’re qualified for, that align with their interests and that have a future. Job seekers don’t just want any job, they want options.

Luckily, many employers today are looking for workers — like these 22 companies that are hiring in large volume. Each company below is looking to hire at least 300 new employees, and some companies, such as Starbucks and Amazon, are looking to hire thousands.

These companies cover many industries and job titles, so job seekers of all backgrounds are in demand. Whether you’re in health care, manufacturing or finance, you might find your new job at one of these companies. (As one radio station points out, these are not only jobs available now but they’re also jobs with companies that treat their employees well. You can’t beat that.)
