Use these tips to help guide you through the best times to start looking for a new job.

No matter if you are looking for a new job or are looking to hire some new talent for your team, timing it right can help to ensure the process is as easy as possible. Keep these tips in mind to help guide you through the process.

You should be on the job hunt:

  • At the beginning of the year. As the year kicks off, it is prime time for most industries and their hiring and interviewing activities. As companies get their new budget for their year, they have a much better idea of how much money they can allocate to the training and hiring of new employees.
  • In September and October. Many hiring managers are returning from their family vacations early in the fall season, which means they have the time they need to get through the interview and hiring process as quickly as possible.

Avoid looking for your next job:

  • In June, July, and August. Most hiring managers are taking their family vacations while the weather is hot during the summer months, which means it can be much more difficult to conduct face to face interviews.
  • In November and December. Most HR departments and hiring managers back off on their hiring goals during the end of the year to get ready for the busy season at the beginning of the year. Most offices are closed for extended periods of time during the holiday season, which can make it difficult to schedule an interview.
