Job Applications set to Soar in the New Year!
It’s getting closer to that time of year again… new year, new job! January is commonly known as one of the best times to look for a new job for numerous reasons. The end of the year sees many companies winding down for the festive period and with Christmas being the second most popular time of year to go on vacation, it’s not always easy to get the relevant staff together.
This brings us to January, although shrouded in post-Christmas blues, it’s not all glum! With a new year comes a fresh start and a plethora of new years’ resolutions; finding a new job may be one of them.
Not only do we get that ‘fresh start’ feeling, employers and companies do too. New plans, new goals and targets for the year ahead, often require an extra pair of hands; more than likely, creating that vacancy that is on the top of your resolutions list.
In addition, it is the start of a new business quarter and with budgets often tight towards the end of December, January is a sigh of relief.
However, there is a down side to this January job hunting surge… everyone is looking, so you need to stand out from the crowd. Don’t go rushing into job applications when you’re not prepared.
From CV to social media, there’s a number of components that you need to take into consideration throughout all stages of your application. In the run up to Christmas and throughout January we will be sharing our top tips to help you stand out above other candidates and land your dream job for the New Year! Keep your eyes peeled!
