3 Reasons to Keep Your Job Search Going This Summer
As the summer months fast approach, many want to sit back, relax and push their job search off until fall. It's been said that the summer time is the worst time to try and land your next job, but that's not the case. Even though business may be slower, hiring does not slow down, especially in this current job market. There are many reasons to kick your job search into high gear. Here are 3 of them:
- There's less competition
As much as you've heard that summer is a bad time to search for a new job, others have as well. Because of this, there will be less competition for you as you embark on your search. Hiring managers will not be as flooded with resumes as they are during other months, which puts yours at the front of the line. (Pro tip: Even though there is less competition, you still want to ensure your resume is in great shape, check out our blog post for resume tips.)
- Easier transitions
Typically, businesses across the board slow down their day-to-day operations in the summertime. This slower-than-usual pace is the perfect time to transition into a new position. You have time to get used to your new role, co-workers and duties. Adjusting to a new job when it's a slower time will ensure that you are ready to go when business picks back up!
- You're more available
With the world slowing down, there's a good chance you are also more available. With more time on your hands, you can dedicate a good amount to your job search. Between updating your resume and cover letter, scheduling interviews and finding people to network with, you will be putting your best foot forward.
It might be easy to fall into "sit back and relax" mode this summer, but that will just prolong your job search. Take advantage of the time you have and continue to look for that next great job!
