CHICAGO (WKZO) -- A national survey of hiring managers shows the same number of employment opportunities for seasonal work as last year.

Employment firm CareerBuilder says 29-percent of employers say they expect to hire seasonal workers this year.  That's unchanged from 2012, but a boost from the 2008-2011 average of 21-percent.

Hospitality and leisure businesses lead the way, followed by information technology and retail.  CareerBuilder says 20-percent of the seasonal jobs should pay 16-dollars-an-hour or more.
