4 reasons to keep job hunting in December

With the Christmas holiday season fast approaching, you’re probably thinking it’s worth shelving the job search and starting afresh in the New Year. However, you might just be missing a trick – and here’s why.

Don’t wait until the New Year to get started on your career resolutions

Get on with applying and you’ll find yourself on employer’s radars, because everyone else is holding off. In January, recruiters will be waist-deep in applications from people looking for new opportunities. In December, people generally have lots of commitments and job searches get sacrificed, make sure yours doesn’t and you’ll be top of the pile. With people generally quitting their jobs in December, after those end of year bonuses have been announced, you need to keep your ears on the ground to get ahead of the vacancies being posted in January.

Natural networking opportunities

The Christmas season is a great time to network – whether you’re tagging along to a friend’s company party, or seeing family friends, it’s a great time to reach out to new connections. Don’t forget your business cards.

There’s more attention to go around

Undoubtedly there’s an application lull in December, so if you’re applying, you’ll get more attention from recruiters. Reach out and you’re more likely to get a response. Especially as it’s the season of goodwill! 

Show your drive

December is the best time to show off your hard work because you’ll be seen as someone who works hard to get what they want and are a go-getter, which creates a positive impressions to prospective employers. But don’t cross the line into desperate by taking things too far.

It’s a given that a lot of job seekers will be taking holidays or putting their feet up and enjoying festivities, so you’ll be ahead of the pack if you continue to look for a new role. Do something every day and you’ll have a new position before you know it.
