Yes, There Is A Best Time To Look For A Job

Whether you live in the frosty foothills of snow-laden Colorado or upon the balmy terrain of breezy SoCal, there's no denying, no matter how hard we wish and pray, that we are indeed in the throes of a rapidly approaching February. The dead of winter is upon us.


Here's a suggestion to beat the hopeless winter doldrums; look for a new job. According to a study conducted by Executives Online based on ten years of hiring data, February and March are the best times of the year to get a new gig. Why? While January regularly brings about a flurry of job activity due to new budgets for a new year, it's a known entity; the job market is flooded with like-minded competition. Yet the threat of your arch nemesis landing a spot at the company you're coveting reduces in February, as the January herd gets hired and leave their former positions - which, hey, may finally get you a foot in the door.

But, if you really want to stand out, head over to our sign up page and start your job-seeking journey with us. Not only do we have amazing opportunities from companies that care about gender diversity and inclusion like Time Inc., Verizon and Viacom, our talent team may be able to help you stand out from the crowd and support you on your path. So, give it a whirl, what have you got to lose but the winter blues? Here are some of PowerToFly's latest and greatest, fresh out of the oven and piping hot for your genius February job search.

20 Lessons from 66 Working Moms Balancing Family and Career

Experience is the greatest teacher, and the experience of being a mom is particularly chock-full of learning opportunities.

We know from the examples set by our coworkers and friends just how good moms are at juggling competing responsibilities and priorities. ("If you want to make sure something gets done, give it to a busy person" would be even more accurate if it was changed to "give it to a working mom.")

So this Mother's Day, we decided to ask working moms at our partner companies about the secret sauce that connects parenting experience to being better and happier at work.
