Why You Should Look for Work during the Holidays

I often warn clients that they will see fewer and fewer jobs during the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.  That’s the bad news.  The good news is that your competition, other job seekers, are less likely to be looking for work.  When you see a job that interests you over the next few weeks, apply for it as quickly as possible.  Some employers need new workers now, and they will hire as soon as possible.  Expect to see fewer job posts over the next four to six weeks, but keep looking and applying.  You might find a new job under your Christmas tree.
