Looking for Work between Thanksgiving and the New Year

The job market is seasonal – to a degree.  Many companies slow down between Thanksgiving and the New Year.  Many will put off hiring until the New Year.  Job seekers notice that there are fewer and fewer open position, which motivates them to stop looking for work.

Try a different approach.  Even though there are fewer job postings, there are also fewer people looking for work.  If you make the effort to keep looking and applying during this holiday season, you might get an interview because you are still working to get a job while your competition is listening to Christmas carols while they shop.  Be patient.  Keep networking and applying.  You never know when a door will open.
