Charleston’s job market is one of the hottest in the nation, as nearly a third of the region’s companies say they plan to hire more people in the coming months.
Some 32 percent of Charleston-area employers plan to add staff in the third quarter, according to a recent survey by the human-resources consulting firm ManpowerGroup. Meantime, just 1 percent expect cutbacks.
That’s the third-best outlook for job growth among the nation’s 100 largest metro areas, the survey found. Only Albany, N.Y., and Richmond, Va., had brighter expectations.
