Where are you going? Where is your job search taking you? Are you frustrated and thinking about taking time off from your job search? Think again. With reduced competition, more funds available in the first quarter of the year, and vacancies to be filled this is a terrific time to look for and pursue new job opportunities. Year after year, statistics show that one of the best times for a job search is between November and March.

by Patricia Rivera, CTW Features on Pilly.com
“You definitely don’t want to slow down. It’s a great time to meet people and catch the attention of decision makers who are hiring,” says Steve Frederick, an executive career coach outside of Chicago. Some companies may also be positioning themselves to grow in 2014. You don’t want to wait until January, when their new budgets are often in place, to make yourself known as a strong candidate…“Since the hiring process takes a lot of time, a January hire can be put into motion in October or November,” Frederick adds.

Why the Holidays Are the Best Time to Look for a Job
by Marty Nemko, on US News & World Report
Most people stop their job search between now and the new year. They’re swamped with holiday hoohah and figure most employers are focusing more on Ho Ho Ho than Hire Hire Hire. But here are six ring-a-ling reasons why you should replace some of your holiday-shopping time with job-search time:
- Many employers are finalizing their 2013 budgets. Indeed, they may be under pressure to get fully staffed-up for the new year.
- Many employers, especially in government, have use-it-or-lose-it funds. If they don’t spend it by year-end, the money goes back to the general fund and the agency is criticized. (Of course, that’s one of the many causes of government waste. Instead of an agency being rewarded for thriftiness, it gets punished.)
- Most job seekers stop job-searching during the holidays. That means you’re facing less competition.
- Employers are less busy and thus more likely to answer their phones and to be in good spirits.
