Holiday Hiring

Posted November 29, 2012

No one hires during the holidays.  That is a myth too many job seekers believe.  Hiring will slow down between Thanksgiving and the New Year.  Some employers still hire during this period.  Moreover, since fewer people look for work, there is less competition for jobs.I have two clients who need resumes quickly because they’re interviewing with hiring managers who will be making decisions before Christmas.

Keep looking for work and new opportunities.  As I wrote recently, the holiday season is a great time for networking.  If you hear that a company is hiring, don’t wait.  Be the first one in line.   Don’t use the holiday season as an excuse to stop looking for work.  Some employers still hire during this period.  If there is a knock at the door of opportunity, be ready to answer.
