There is NO wrong time to look for a job

It is a common myth that holidays are a bad time to look for a job. Not true – and especially not true at this time of year. Actual hiring may be slow during the holidays, but January is a peak hiring month and candidates who network during the holidays can have an edge for that hiring.

So don’t stop just because the holiday lights are up. Keep calling friends and relatives, answer ads and send your resume to recruiters in a carefully targeted direct email campaign.
