Just like anything else, there is a hiring season for employers. As such, it should be safe to say that job seekers should consider proper timing when applying for new jobs. January and February are said to be the best months in a year for job hunting, especially when you’re looking for long-term and full-time positions.
Trends show that March, April, and May are still good times to apply for jobs before hiring rates start to slow down in the summer, particularly during June, July, and August. Hiring rates pick up again in autumn, particularly September and October, as the last hiring spree of the year. Lastly, the worst times to apply for a job are November and December, unless you’re just looking for temporary jobs that will help you pay the bills.
