As unemployment levels fitfully decline, plenty of recession-weary businesses remain hesitant to expand their payrolls—but a new report from the job aggregator SimplyHired.com offers good news for job seekers everywhere: There are big companies in every major metropolitan area hiring in heaps.


Simply Hired's new employment outlook report reveals the five companies hiring the most in 25 major metro areas.  It turns out that Chrysler is hiring the most in Detroit, with 790 job openings, while UnitedHealth Group is doing the heaviest hiring in the Twin Cities. The health insurance firm is looking to fill 2,898 positions in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Meanwhile, retailers like Home Depot and Staples are taking on the biggest number of new employees in Atlanta and New York.


“Metro areas that stand out include Washington, D.C., which continues to be strong due to government hiring, and the San Francisco Bay Area, due to technology sector growth,” says Gautam Godhwani, chief executive of SimplyHired.com. “We also see strength in Boston, Austin and Seattle, also influenced by growth in the technology sector.”


Simply Hired's report looks at nationwide hiring trends, too. “There is significant evidence that the overall job market is improving,” Godhwani says. “Job openings in the Simply Hired database grew 1.5% month-over-month and 9.2% year-over-year. Historically, employment is a lagging indicator to economic recovery. Simply Hired has seen an uptick in job openings for much of last year. Those job openings are now getting filled, and we see more favorable numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We expect these trends to continue, with a better employment market in 2012.”
