Holiday Season = Slow Hiring. Not Necessarily.
As the Holidays grow near, traditional thinking is that companies aren’t hiring and job opportunities grow scarce. Use this to your advantage. Go against the trend and make sure your resume is in the hands of as many hiring managers as possible.
- Many companies have a use-it-or-lose-it budget philosophy. End-of-year hiring secures the headcount budget for the following year.
- Companies have new positions approved for the next fiscal year. They want to find the perfect candidate and on-board as quickly as possible.
- Competition is scarce. Folks are focused on the holidays and sitting tight until after year-end bonuses and paid time off. This gives your resume a chance to truly stand out.
- Business is slow. Downtime is perfect for scheduling interviews.
