Job Searching during the Holidays
Are you among the many job seekers
who are contemplating whether you should waste time job searching
during the holiday season? If you are, I advise you to start job searching. If you've already started job searching, then continue to job search. Contrary to what many job seekers believe, hiring does not come to a halt during the holidays. Hiring may slow down a little, but it still goes on. Employers still have needs for their businesses, and they must continue to fill those needs.
Additionally, there are great benefits to job searching during the holidays. These benefits include that:
- There is reduced competition among job seekers. Since most job seekers put their job searches on hold, there is less competition for jobs. Since there is less competition, this increases your chances at landing a job.
- More executives and hiring persons are in good spirits during the holidays. Their good spirits make them more open to networking and interviewing.
- The holiday season is a great time for networking. There are many parties and events during the holiday season. Take advantage of this and mention your job search. You never know who may be able to help you in your job search.
- Professionals tend to change jobs, retire, and earn promotions more during the months of November and December. Therefore, hiring persons will be looking to replace these professionals.
Remember, even during the holidays, the is no holiday for job searching.
