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.
