The Upcoming Holidays… and Accelerating Your Career Search Momentum

by Jason Nemoy

For those that are in transition, you might feel a sense that potential future employers tend to slow down their hiring during approaching holidays . (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.) Well, I’ve been approached by this topic recently, and all I can say is in many cases, companies ACCELERATE their hiring targets in Q4 to fulfill their annual headcount budgets, and to prepare for the following year. In fact, I’ve seen incumbents start new jobs on December 30th! So…. I would encourage anyone to do your best to remain positive and maintain (and even elevate) search-momentum. Bring the highest level of energy and effort as you cap the year. Finish strong. Be creative.
