You’re probably up to speed with news of the improving economy (both national and worldwide), and the thawing of the job market which results from it. Since finances aren’t so tight anymore, plenty of major companies can finally afford to staff the positions they already needed for quite some time, and even to dare expand a little. As a result, the job market is finally more relaxed and there are plenty of positions and job openings being listed on top search engine sites everywhere. The trend is expecting to continue for at least several months into the future, so it may just be the best time for job changes and hunts for a better position (especially considering the number of companies hiring now).
If you’re looking for a job suitable to your skills and qualifications (or a better job than the one you currently have), this is the best time to apply to one. There’s no need to settle for the first offer you get or the position from the first interview you successfully ‘pass’, since there will be plenty more offers in the near future, besides the ones from the companies hiring now. But even if you’re not planning any radical job changes right now, the offers you could get can work as leverage in renegotiating your current salary and so on, so you’d better keep an eye on job openings in your field. Without further ado, these are the top 10 companies hiring now (September 2015), listed alphabetically.
