UNSUITABLE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACKNOWLEDGED
By David Schepp
Conventional wisdom holds
that job searching during the hol-
idays is a huge waste of time.
Employers simply don't hire this
time of year, the thinking goes,
so those in the job market often
take December off, resolving to
start fresh in the new year.
But waiting may not be
wise. A recent survey of
executive recruiters showed that
more than two-thirds (69
percent) of employers said the
number of jobs posted increases
during November and
December or remains the same
as the rest of the year. Further,
53 percent of recruiters
responding to the ExecuNet
survey report that interviews are
being scheduled during the last
two months of the year.
While recruiters might be
more keen to fill executive slots
(which bring commissions),
December can be a particularly
good time of year for job seekers
to search. After all, many
employers are keen on hiring to
ensure that they are fully staffed
at the beginning of the year, says
Wanda Barrett, recruiting
manager at the Society for
Human Resource Management.
Companies have specific
goals that they need to meet in
any given year, and it can be
hard to meet those goals if one
department or another is
understaffed, Barrett says.
"They don't want more work
being added to the people who
are there," she says, adding that
increased workloads often make
for less happy employees. "No
one wants to be doing two or
three jobs at the same time."
Employers looking to hire
people before the end of the
year are busy interviewing
applicants right now, because
scheduling interviews during
the final week of December can
be a challenge, she says. "So
don't assume that everybody
has taken off and no one's
As the ExecuNet survey notes,
job seekers who suspend their
searches are likely to be left in
the dust by the competition.
Seventy-nine percent of
recruiters said the number of
employed executives who return
calls increases or holds steady
throughout the holidays. In fact,
November and December are a
prime time to reach out to
recruiters, as 78 percent of
respondents say they are
available and in the office.
If you're just starting or
renewing your job search, a
good place to start, of course, is
with your resume -- by getting
it in front of as many hiring
managers as possible. That
doesn't mean simply emailing
or snail-mailing a bunch of
them en masse. Rather, it means
spending significant time
targeting particular employers
and jobs, and using key words to
craft cover letters and resumes
to the companies you're looking
to work for and the job you're
looking to get.
Such resume advice is good
year-round, but eager job
seekers this time of year also
benefit from reduced
competition and greater

Brown-Volkman. She offers
• It's party season, which
means organizations and
associations of every stripe
are holding get-togethers,
making it a great time for
• People are in good spirits,
so likely more apt to help
you or lend advice.
• The holidays provide job
hunters with the perfect
excuse to call up old
acquaintances just to see
• Once the conversational
ball is rolling, it's easier to
ask whether they know of
any open jobs or companies
who are hiring.
