Certain industries and companies that need to gear up for a busy summer season do the majority of their hiring in the spring. This gives companies the opportunity to fully train new employees before they are completely swamped with work in the summertime. Because of the timing, many of the new employees that are taken on are recent college graduates with little work experience, making it that much more important to get them the training that they need in spring. Some of the industries that see a huge influx of new hires in springtime include:

-Tourism (i.e. hotels, resort businesses)

-Hospitality

-Construction

-Landscaping

-Education (i.e. private tutoring and test prep courses, in preparation for fall)

In addition to these, almost any business will see its regular employees taking more vacation time during summer, and so they may decide to hire additional help in the spring to make up for that lost productivity.
