No matter how many times you heard “Happy New Year” in the past few weeks, you may find yourself entering 2024 on a blue note. This could be especially true if you’re coming up empty in your job search. But turning the calendar page is a great opportunity to refresh your mindset and attack the job market. That’s why January is a particularly good time to find employment.
3 Reasons to Look for a Job in January
The End of the Holiday Hiring Hiatus
While some businesses do some seasonal hiring to stay staffed during the holidays, for the most part, they pause recruiting around Thanksgiving. Part of this slowdown is to allow current employees to enjoy the festivities that come with the holiday season. But also, companies are focused on other year-end business tasks. Once January comes, recruiting re-emerges as a top priority.
Increased Workloads Expose Staffing Needs
As companies resume normal operations in January, they may find themselves struggling to keep up with increased production demands. It’s often at this point that businesses start to feel the impact of employees lost during the fourth quarter. And when these specific staffing needs start to show, recruiting shifts into overdrive.
New Year, New Goals
January is also the time when most companies set their goals for the coming year. Or, if the goals have already been released, January is the launch date for many projects and initiatives designed to help those companies reach their goals. Perhaps one of a business’s goals is simply to hire more employees. Or maybe, organizations are starting projects that call for an influx of hardworking talent and subject matter experts. Either way, there’s a heightened need for hiring.
