Why Job Hunting Shouldn’t Take a Holiday
With Halloween behind us, attention begins to turn toward the end-of-year holidays, at least here in the US. For many job seekers, there is a perception that hiring activity takes a holiday as well, so we surveyed executive recruiters to learn what they're really doing the last couple months of the year.
ExecuNet's research found that it was business as usual for executive recruiters and hiring managers, with search assignments, job postings, interviews and hiring decisions pretty much at the same level as other times of the year, and in some cases, even increasing!
If you maintain your pre-Halloween level of focus and intensity in your search activity, you're likely to have fewer competitors because of the common belief that hiring is dormant in November and December.
