14 Companies Hiring In Large Volume

companies with a lot of jobsThere's an interesting dynamic going on in the job market right now. Despite the fact that millions of people can't find jobs, millions of employers can't seem to find the right employees, either.

In case you missed it, last week, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the economy created no jobs in August, and that the unemployment rate held steady at 9.1 percent.

At the same time, however, the BLS also reported that nearly 2.7 million jobs went unfilled in August, and, according to Manpower's 2011 Talent Shortage Survey, 34 percent of employers report having difficulties filling open positions -- a 3 percent increase over 2010.

To help close this employment gap, and match job seekers in need of work with companies in need of their services, we've put together a list of employers who are hiring in large volume right now.

The following 14 companies have a combined total of nearly 10,000 job openings -- and they need employees as badly as you need a job.
