Many people decide to postpone any job hunting til the New year as they focus on Christmas parties, Christmas shopping and the holiday period. We find that before Christmas can be a great time to look for a new job as companies choose to rap up their recruitment before the year end and are eager to use up their recruitment budget for 2010.
Some of the fastest turnarounds have taken place in the week up to Christmas. We have known candidates to go for an interview and come out with a job offer on the same day. A great way to start the holiday period.
If you are thinking of holding out on your job search, it might be worth thinking again. if you get the groundwork done before the holidays, then the winter blues wont feel so hard when the holidays are over and the dark days of January kick in.
