The end of the year is a quiet time for some companies. Doors close for the holidays, workers take time off for vacation, and hiring sometimes slows. Yet not every company is halting its hiring plans until the new year, and some are even looking to hire a large number of workers. CareerBuilder has just released a list of companies hiring in large volume for both permanent and seasonal jobs.

"Employers are ramping up staffs as they close out 2012, manage higher holiday volumes and prepare for the business needs of 2013," says Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America. "The hiring environment is still cautious, but opportunities are opening in everything from technology and health care to energy, financial services, manufacturing and retail."
