It shouldn’t take you hours to find employees in New York City. But that’s exactly how much time you might have to waste if you rely on traditional methods to post a job in New York City. If you’re hiring in New York City, there are better ways to do it.

You’ll also find both online and local resources that you can use to begin improving your hiring process immediately. Keep reading to learn more.

New York City Overview

New York City has a population of approximately 8,340,000. That’s more people than there are in many states. People flock to NYC because of everything that it has to offer. There are world-class universities, cultural exhibits, restaurants, and sports venues to enjoy here. With so many people in the area, it shouldn’t be all that hard for a business to find good hourly workers in New York. 

In fact, the city currently has an unemployment rate of about 12.6%. That means you should have a good pool of candidates to choose from if you’re looking to hire in New York. There are also lots of people that live outside of NYC and commute to work in the city. This another potential set of individuals that your company can hire from.

New York City Businesses

New York City is home to a number of thriving industries. It’s one of the world’s leading places for finance. The city also has a huge demand for health care and professional services. However, these industries tend to hire salaried workers.

For hourly employees in NYC, the two biggest industries are retail and manufacturing. There are more than 941,000 retail workers in approximately 77,000 businesses across the state. Many of these jobs are located in New York City.

Technical manufacturing is also on the rise in the five boroughs area. There’s a growing number of hourly jobs available in the production of mobile devices, video games, 3D printing, and related areas.

Hiring Resources in New York City

Given how many people are in New York City, it’s no surprise that the area has some of the best local hiring resources in the country. Many of these are targeted at specific industries.

For example, restaurants in NYC can find specialized and skilled food industry workers through a website called NYC Poached. There’s also an NYC-specific hiring board called New York Jobs. It’s especially good for employers who are looking for hourly workers in the Manhattan area, but you can use New York Jobs no matter where your company is located in the city.

You can also post help-wanted ads in local NYC-area papers, such as:
