Don’t Let Summer Slow You Down

June 22, 2017

Career Advice

What’s better than summer and the holidays? If you ask a job seeker, they’ll say “any other time of the year!” It’s true that June through August and November and December are known historically as slow periods when it comes to hiring. But the best season for job searching is only dependent on one variable: you. Are you ready to search for a job? Then it’s a great time to search for a job!

Don’t get discouraged by the doom and gloom articles about the summer slump. Plenty of companies are continuously hiring throughout the year. Especially if they, like us, are building new facilities that require hundreds of new positions. There’s also the chance for a boom in seasonal work opportunities. And you could never possibly predict when someone is leaving a company, which leaves a wide opening for you to swoop in!

So use the summer as you would any other time of the year: set your job alerts, get your resume polished, and keep networking. If you’re lucky, you can do this all poolside. 😉 Don’t forget to find some time for fun too!
