Are you ready to shut down for the holidays? Not so fast….
At Transition Solutions, we have been helping companies and individuals with workforce changes for 35 years.
As we are now immersed in the holiday season, many job seekers listen to the old adage “nobody hires in December”. Not so fast! December is actually a key month for many decisions made for the new fiscal year. We have found that many organizations make decisions in December, that are triggered in the first of the year, as new budgets take place and openings can be finally filled.
What can you do now?
- Network – Attend those holiday parties. Go to those industry events. Be Present. Often times, executives are more available during the two weeks at the end of December than any other time of the year. Companies are quiet, there are many vacations and often they are picking up their own phone and checking their own emails.
- Stay in the Market – Continue to apply to ads, follow up on those ads and work on all leads. A house taken off the market won’t sell. So many people take the month of December off from job search, thus, the competition is less and your chances of selection are greater. Be better than your competition!
- Hone your marketing materials – Great opportunity to obtain input into what may need updating, changing, shifting for the new year. Reach out and seek advice on communications, process and job seeking tools.
There is still plenty of time to enjoy family, friends and the special times that holidays present. Maximize your job search opportunities while taking in all the holiday spirit.
