Why You Should Continue the Hiring Process During the Holiday Season

Many companies tend to ease up on hiring processes towards the end of the year, but considering the current IT and Digital hiring markets, that might not be the wisest choice.  Here are some reasons for you to continue and even accelerate the hiring process during the Holiday Season:

New Year = New Job

More than any other time of the year, many IT and Digital Professionals set career goals towards the beginning of a new year to make a career change.  This makes it the perfect time to continue your sourcing, recruiting and offer stages.

Less Competition

With some companies putting the hiring process on the backburner, continuing your hiring process puts you at a competitive advantage with a candidate pool that is waiting on answers from others.

It’s likely that some decision-makers will take time off during the Holiday Season but when it comes to the candidate experience, nothing can be worse than the interview and offer stages go silent.  Communicating clear timelines and setting expectations with a candidate during a delay can mean the difference between securing or losing the individual during the process.
