Looking for a new job opportunity is on a lot of people’s New Year’s resolution list - but don’t wait until January to start looking! Some candidates think that there isn’t much point in looking for new job opportunities during the run up to Christmas, and so they hold off the search until January. However, what job seekers are forgetting is that December is a perfect time for employers to advertise job vacancies, and start recruiting for new members of staff!
Towards the end of the year, all work and plans have been completed, targets and goals have been met (or not!) and employers and Managers, have more time on their hands to plan for the New Year ahead. Therefore during this quiet time, decision–makers have more time to consider whether they would like to expand their team and look for new members of staff – and so they begin the recruitment process and start to advertise their job vacancies. The same goes for employed candidates, the festive break provides time out of work to search for new job opportunities and attend interviews – without having to take time out of their work schedule. Lots of people wrongly believe that this time of year isn’t usually a speedy time to hire, and so it gives active job seekers more opportunities to carry out their job search – reducing the overall competition.
If you are an employee who would like a new job in time for 2016, now is a great time to start looking! You could start with creating or updating your CV profile, be sure to include a summary of all of your qualifications, key skills and experience. Most job advertising boards send out ‘jobs by email’ alerts on a regular basis that include all of the latest and featured job vacancies – these are great if you don’t want to miss out on job opportunities, and it makes it much quicker to apply for the job positions that you are interested in. Why don’t you get a head start on securing your dream job, while other job seekers hold off until January?
Start your New Year looking forward to a fresh start within a new environment, with new faces and maybe even a pay rise to help with the Christmas debt?
