Direct marketing employment picture brightens

Published on .

Owatonna, Minn.—Direct marketing industry hiring is on the way up, according to Bernhart Associates Executive Search’s fourth-quarter employment report released Tuesday.

Sixty percent of companies surveyed said they plan to hire before the end of the year, and only 11% said they have a hiring freeze in place.

"Both of these indicators are showing significant improvement over the third quarter and are at their best levels since the survey began in 2001," said Bernhart President Jerry Bernhart.
