January: The Prime Month for Job Search?

Posted on 12 January 2022

The New Year can be a great time to start fresh. If you want the 2022 year to be your best year yet and exceed your career goals, then one of the best steps you can start your job hunting right now.

January is considered by career experts as one of the best times to look for a new job. Why are those two months a prime time for job hunting? There are several factors at play as to why this is the case. 

• The start of the year is when a lot of companies' budgets renew, and that opens the door to hiring opportunities.

• Employers' hiring needs often are clearer at the start of a new year.

• Hiring managers are back from holiday breaks and are ready to forge ahead with filling job openings.

• Hiring frequently slows down at the end of the year, resulting in a potential backlog of job openings in January and February.

• The winter months, when business might be slower, sometimes free up more time for tasks like writing job descriptions and posting job openings.

While there might be a lot of competition, and there are a lot of other people looking for jobs, the volume of interest on the employer side, so far, has consistently been higher than the number of people looking for work, which means it continues to be a great time to be out there looking for a job.
