January and February generally represent the strongest hiring period of the year. So, if you stay active, make your presence known and build connections in December, you will be setting yourself up to be first in line when hiring takes off.
Savvy job-seekers might know how to write resumes and cover letters, but few are aware of this surprising fact: Contrary to popular belief, December is actually the best time of year to look for work! There are two compelling reasons why this is true.
Holiday parties and gatherings make for the perfect venue to connect with as many people as possible. So how can you successfully "sell" yourself while remaining festive, cordial, and all the while radiating the holiday spirit? There are many ways to do so.
Do you consider looking for work over the holidays to be a waste of time? Do you figure companies don't usually hire in December... so why bother? Well, if these thoughts have crossed your mind, think again. December is actually the very best time of year to look for work.
