If you are looking for work, don’t give up during the holidays. It can actually be a great time to get hired.
The holidays are a busy, stressful time of year for almost everyone. If you are in the process of looking for a job it can be even more stressful. You may be tempted to put your job search on hold during the end-of-the-year hustle and bustle. That may not be a wise strategy. We at KB Staffing are always hiring, every week of the year, and many employers are, too. Our advice is to adjust your method of seeking employment during the holidays, rather than give up on it altogether.
How Holiday Job Hunts Can Benefit You
It’s important to not let yourself get overwhelmed by the busyness of the holidays combined with a job search. A little organization can make a big difference. Here are a few reasons why looking for work at this time of year may be a better idea than you realize.
- Less competition. Let’s be honest. Many people forgo their job search at this time of year because it just seems pointless. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Employers still have needs that drive them to hire no matter what the calendar says. The fact that there are fewer candidates to choose from in December automatically gives you a leg up.
- Seasonal employment may become permanent. Many companies experience an increase in business during the holidays, particularly Central Florida, with its influx of snowbirds. Often, they will invite some of the temporary workers they hired to take permanent positions once the rush has passed. This is a great way to get your foot in the door.
- The security of starting the new year with a new job. If you have been unemployed or underemployment for any amount of time, you may be feeling the pinch. Having a new job lined up to start the year with can be a huge confidence boost, not to mention a welcome financial relief.
