Weekly Tip #45: The Job Market is Heavily in Your Favor – Especially during the Holiday Season
While you may believe that the holiday season is not a great time to be looking for a new position, the opposite is true right now. The post-Covid transition in all industries has resulted in a shrinking candidate pool.
- Companies are desperately trying to ramp up and get the right staff in place before the new year.
- Competition is scarce. As most folks sit back and wait until after the holidays to begin a job search, your resume will stand out and get the attention it deserves.
- Business travel is still much less frequent, and virtually non-existent in the holiday season. Executives are available and focused on filling positions.
- Budgets are being revised upward for the coming year. Ideal job candidates can negotiate a significant bump in compensation.
