Do Companies Hire in December?

Savvy Tip: Keep Job Hunting in December

People think that hiring slows down during the holidays, but December is actually a busy time for recruiting employees, says Cesar Ulloa, a senior staffing manager at Winter, Wyman, a staffing agency. Industries like retail bring on temporary workers to help with the busy season.

A number of my friends have had quite a number of interviews this month because companies are getting ready to hire for the New Year. Firms that are preparing for the upcoming year will tend to make their hiring decisions before the end of the month. It's also a good time to look for jobs since other people are dropping the ball on job searching because of the mistaken belief that hiring will be slow during December.

Don't drop your job hunting efforts during this month, keep up the effort, and remember to treat it as your full-time job!
