Why January is a great time for job searching

Hello 2022! It’s been a busy start to the year so far (who expected anything less…) and here at Drake Recruitment we’re as busy as ever matching candidates and clients. If you’ve been thinking about looking for a new job, now is the time to start – here’s why.

New year, new you. It’s that time of year, right at the beginning, where we evaluate our situation and resolve to make positive changes in our lives. Build on that ‘new you’ energy and focus it into finding a new and exciting career.

There’s plenty of opportunities available! December is a busy time for many companies, and it’s likely many will have held off recruitment until the new year. The result? Lots of job opportunities to choose from.

It’s easier for organisations to recruit. With new recruiting budgets, most employees back to work after the holidays and less pressing deadlines, hiring managers have the capacity they need to recruit in January.

Get started early. It can take time to find a new job, so even if you’re not necessarily looking to make a move immediately, you should start your search sooner rather than later.
