Are the holidays a good time to look for a new job?
Yes! Here are 2 reasons why:
- Everyone thinks it’s a bad time to look. Go against the grain. Do the opposite. Research companies you’d like to work for. However, don’t just apply to a job posting. Find an executive or leader in your specialization and send them a message on LinkedIn or find a phone number and call them!
- Certain companies are looking to use their remaining hiring budgets before the end of the year. They’ll be more proactive in reaching out and responding to inquiries.
If your New Year’s resolution is to find a new job, get a head start and be strategic about your search. At the very least, you’ll be ahead of others who decide to start their search later in January.
