Job Searching over the Holidays

From a recruitment perspective, December and August are the two most difficult months of the year.  Candidates are more likely to put off job searching at these times so as to gain those last weeks of summer pleasure or to use the time to visit friends and family over the winter holidays.  If you are looking for a new opportunity in either August or December, reach out to recruiters.  It’s so difficult to find people at home this time of year, they will be very happy to hear from you.

Also, the week between Christmas and New Years is one of the best times to reach out to business people you haven’t yet met.  There is a festive mood in the air and generally people are more relaxed — unless you are seeking a job in the retail sector!  I don’t recommend leaving a voicemail.  Keep dialing until you get someone live.

Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting!
