So we’ve turned the clocks back and our evenings are getting darker by the day, and with Christmas around the corner it can seem tempting to hold your job search until the New Year. BUT WAIT! Right here, right now, is one of the most opportune times to kick start your job search. And here’s why.

The Summer-Slow Down is over. Typically job searching in the summer months can be slower than usual, simply because hiring managers and decision makers, like all of us, will be heading off on their summer holidays, which can sometimes have an impact on hiring. Now with the holiday season behind us (before the next), most managers are back in the office and ready to hire.

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas. Christmas is a huge deal for most organisations, and in particular, the design and marketing teams will be busy working at 100 miles an hour. Not only does this busy period mean there’s more permanent opportunities available, but freelancers will be in high demand too. Expect turnaround times to be quick!

It’s all about the budget. Hiring managers will be realising that there’s only a few months left to use that hiring budget, and if they don’t use it, they’ll lose it!

By starting your job search right away, you’ll give yourself the perfect head start when businesses are keen to hire, ready to take on 2016 with a bang.
