While the presidential election outcome won't likely change your competitors' hiring plans, it could produce a small economic boost in certain industries, according to a new poll by outplacement consulting firm Chal-lenger, Gray & Christmas.

Survey results: 57 percent said their organization's hiring and recruiting plans will stay the same regardless of a Bush or Kerry victory; 43 percent said the results could alter their hiring plans.

CEO John Challenger said Presi-dent Bush's re-election could positively affect the automotive, financial services, timber, pharmaceutical and tobacco industries. A Kerry win could benefit the health care, education, government, home building and insurance sectors.
