Why February Is One Of The TOP Months To Hire
What is the best time of year top talent is looking for a new job? This month! Data shows this is the best time of year to hire the best people. Hiring managers have received new hiring budgets for the year, the majority of workers are back from holiday vacation… For these reasons, February is an excellent month to source from a new candidate pool.
January usually starts slow as people return from a holiday break. But by mid-January, hiring picks up fast with phone interviews.
Come February, the first round of interviews are under way.
The tight labor market makes this year’s hiring season especially tough for companies across the nation. Top candidates are hearing “Yes” much quicker and are transitioning to a next level job. Acting quickly is key to securing the best talent for your organization.
