Are we nearing a rebound in hiring? If the anecdotal evidence is any indication, we certainly are. According to Manpower's quarterly Employment Outlook Survey, hiring in almost every sector is about to get better.

The staffing company's assessment, which surveys employers in thirteen industries, found that twelve of the thirteen have net positive employment outlooks for the second quarter of this year. Even in the lone sector with a net negative outlook -- government -- 10 percent of employers said they expected to hire more people next quarter.

Here's Manpower:

Of the more than 18,000 employers surveyed across the nation, 16% anticipate an increase in staff levels during Quarter 2 2010, while 8% expect a decrease in payrolls, resulting in a Net Employment Outlook of +8%. When seasonally adjusted, the Net Employment Outlook
becomes +5%...
