Why Keep Up Your Job Search During the Holidays

November 14th, 2017

Looking for new jobs in Spokane, WA? You might be tempted to call it quits over the holidays. But did you know that’s actually a prime time to continue on with your search? Here’s why:

Employers are hiring.

You might want to take time off during the holidays. But companies don’t close up shop. Not only that, but if their fiscal year starts at the beginning of next year – and they have a budget for new hires – they could be hiring in a hurry. That means you might miss out on the perfect opportunity if you take a break from your search.

Fewer candidates are looking.

Employers are hiring, but less candidates are looking because they’re taking time off for the holidays. And fewer candidates means reduced competition for you, increasing your odds of landing the Spokane job you want.

It offers plenty of networking opportunities.

From holiday parties to New Year’s celebrations, opportunities to network abound during this time of the year. You should even consider creating a business card with your name and contact information, which you can readily hand out to new contacts.

You can reconnect with old contacts.

Besides meeting new people, the holidays provide a great time to reconnect and catch up with old friends and colleagues. When you do, you can ask about potential jobs in Spokane, WA they might know about, or to simply keep you in mind if they hear of any openings.

You can keep up momentum.

Stopping your job search for a few weeks during the holidays is going to kill the momentum you’ve built up. Come January it will be harder to pick back up. Instead, when you keep up your search, you can stay on track and hopefully find a new job – faster.

In business, January is a big month for hiring. But it didn’t all start then. Interviews, screening and job offers were likely made back in December – which is why you should keep up your search.
