5 Reasons To Start Your Fintech Job Hunt Now
Here are 5 more reasons why you shouldn’t wait until January to secure that new job:The competition for new jobs will be lower as a large majority of job searchers will wait until the New Year to find a new role.
- Many companies are eager to hire before January and hiring managers can be more accessible as there are less people to deal with as they start to wind down before the holiday season.
- Budgets set out for new employees and roles that are currently in place, may not be there come January. Meaning companies may have excess hiring budgets to use before the end of year.
- Christmas tends to be a popular time for people to leave their jobs. Many people planning to travel or relocate do so in January, there can often be a rise in the number of employees bowing out early December for extended Christmas breaks – all leading to more job opportunities.
- Finding a job prior to Christmas break takes the pressure off in January, allowing you to settle into your new job and not having the worries of job hunting on your mind throughout the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
So, avoid the influx of new competition in January and stay ahead of the pack this Christmas!
