The big months for hiring are January and February, when employers are getting back to work after the holidays and are ready to fill positions. For job seekers, it’s a good idea to start applying sooner rather than later. Job seekers who apply in early January or even December may have the best chance of getting hired. With so many job seekers taking a break from the job hunt during the holidays, the competition for open jobs has lessened. December is also a great time to prep: work on your resume, your Careerlink job seeker settings, and even your social media profiles. The holidays can provide a great opportunity for networking.
