So you guys, I just got featured on Andrew Seaman’s LinkedIn Newsfeed! This will mark my ninth time being featured as part of a LinkedIn News post. Here’s to more before we close out the year!

Please check out this fantastic article by as part of their weekly News’ Job Search & Careers editorials from Andrew Seaman with our president, Matt Warzel, as a contributor – Juggling a holiday job search

My input:

Great topic Andrew! I believe it can depend to an extent on the industry you’re recruiting to/applying for. Tom Taylor lays out a solid argument for why this is a good time of year but it assumes the companies are operating on calendar year budgets, whereas some operate on either a Fiscal Year or Academic Year. I don’t find this time of year to be that productive for a couple of reasons. 1. The simple dynamics of the season – people are busy and can be preoccupied with holiday preparations, family time, office parties and functions, etc. 2. Due to holiday schedules, being able to coordinate site visits to ensure all necessary parties are available, can also be problematic. 3. While “New Year’s” resolutions can spur people to action, that actual action often doesn’t kick in until the first of the year. I usually use this time to “target” potential passive candidates for existing positions and prepare campaigns to be launched at the beginning of the year but, as far as production and results, the month of December is not ideal and our efforts as recruiters can often get lost in the “noise” of the holidays.

Had to save some photos too! HUGE DEAL FOR ME!
