Job seekers and corporate recruiters often say the holidays are slow for hiring, but don’t believe it. As a former search firm recruiter what became evident during this time was getting hired throughout the holiday months of November and December was actually very feasible and often close to the top billing months of the year. It can be a great time to land that job and it is recommended to keep your job search going throughout the holidays.



Here are 6 Little Known Reasons Why You Can Get Hired in November and December:



(1) You might d
iscover that jobs open in November and December were often business-critical functions within the organization and, therefore, companies hired quickly when a close-to-the-right candidate surfaced. If the position was not pivotal, then the company would have hired in January, if they could.



(2) Organizations on a fiscal calendar year always tried to use budget dollars and/or fill approved openings to not lose the money or head count for the following year.



(3) Candidates who are suitable for open jobs during this time have a greater chance of getting hired since many of their competing candidates postpone the search until January—candidates still in the job search game are up against less competition in November and December.



(4) With holiday parties and “thank you to our vendor/client” events, it is an exceptional time for candidates to network without actually looking like they are job hunting. Additionally, because business for some industries could be slower during this period, this time is ripe for being able to dart out for an interview without raising eyebrows.



(5) Companies that have a strategic plan to hiring tend to want to seek out talent in December, since it is a down time for many US-based organizations. Reactive companies may sit out on the side lines until their next opening comes around in the New Year, but better quality companies take action during December to court the best people to add to their ranks.



(6) If a US-based candidate is targeting a global company that organization may not slow down during US holiday periods. Keep in mind that every culture may not celebrate a holiday during November or December. So if international assignments are what a candidate is seeking, whether the candidate is US-based on not, stepping up the search during this time can improve the odds of landing a global role.



Bottom line is if you are exhausted and need a break or if you have family obligations that are preventing you from conducting your job search, then post pone the search until January. There will certainly be positions to apply for during the New Year. However, if you are still pumped up to do a search, then keep going. Do not stop simply because you ‘heard’ it is slow. Capitalize on what the season offers job seekers. Make the most of the lower volumes of candidates applying and the increased amount of social opportunities the season provides. And remember, a professional resume writing and job search service can be the perfect way to shine light on why you are the perfect candidate. Look for one to help you get the job you want.
