Why you Should Continue Your Job Search Through The Holidays

Still not sure whether you should call it quits looking for that new job until the new year? Here’s why we think you should keep your job search going during the holiday season.

Business continues

We often assume that because we take a holiday at the end of the year, businesses take one too. But hiring continues regardless. The end of the fourth quarter can be even busier for some companies, because they are pressured to finalise new staff, in order to start the new year on the front foot.

There’s less competition

Because most job seekers will stop their search in the final part of the year (under the false impression that companies will not be hiring over Christmas), you will have a lot less competition. The perfect opportunity for you to make your move.

More networking opportunities

The Christmas period is obviously packed with social events, so what better opportunity to network? You never know who you’re going to meet at Christmas drinks, so get talking and discuss your job search and career plans with people.

Make the most of the time off

If you already have a job, but looking for something new, the Christmas break offers the perfect opportunity to dedicate some time to it. By updating your resume and making a list of potential contacts, you’ll be ready to go on January 1.
