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.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

How Being an Open Member of the LGBTQIA+ Community Has Helped Procore’s Alex Zinik Overcome Imposter Syndrome at Work

Alex Zinik wasn't surprised that she started her career in education—she decided she would become a teacher when she was just in third grade.

She was surprised while working as a paraeducator in the school system and preparing to become a special education teacher, she discovered that it didn't feel quite right. "I didn't know if that's what I really wanted to do," she recalls.

So a friend suggested she take a job during her off summers at construction software company Procore. She thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try out this new challenge, and if she needed to, she could go back to the school district once the summer was over.

"Five summers later, I'm still here!" she says, smiling. "And I see myself here for many more years. I just fell in love with the company, the culture, and with the career growth opportunities I was presented with."

As part of our Pride month celebrations, Alex, currently the Senior Executive Assistant to the CEO at Procore, sat down with us to share how a common fear—the fear of being found out—underlay the imposter syndrome she felt when pivoting to an industry in which she lacked experience, and the anxiety she often felt before coming out to her friends and family about her sexuality.

Read on for her insight on overcoming negative thought patterns, being yourself, and paying it forward.

The Outlook That Helps CSL’s Paula Manchester Invest in Herself and Her Team

If you told Paula Manchester that you weren't good at math, she wouldn't believe you.

"That's a global indictment," she says. "'I'm not good at math' implies that you don't have the ability to nurture that muscle. And then I'd ask what kind of math? There's a lot to math."

How Afterpay’s Emma Woods Seeks Out Growth for Herself and Her Team

When Emma Woods decided to take her children out of school for six months and homeschool them while traveling around Australia in a caravan, it wasn't the first time she found a way to balance personal and professional growth. It was just a more extreme version of the types of choices she had been making throughout her career.

Emma started her career in the world of telecommunications, moving from IC to team manager, then to contract positions when she had her children and needed flexible scheduling. Now in her current role as an Engineering Manager at payment platform Afterpay, Emma continues to find ways to manage her personal and professional growth, and her family's well-being.
