Getting a Job in the Last Quarter of This Year!

There are five reasons you need to put extra effort and energy behind your job search in the last quarter of this year.

REASON ONE:
Hiring authorities are motivated to spend their hiring budgets in the last quarter of the year.  If they don’t spend their hiring budgets by the end of the year, their budgets are actually reduced for the coming year.  It is because of this fact that you need to put extra effort into your job search starting TODAY.

REASON TWO:
Corporate profits are currently at record high levels and many employers surveyed intend to hire before the end of the year.

REASON THREE:
Many employers will also terminate average performers during the last quarter to eliminate paying year-end bonuses.  These average employees would also qualify for additional vacation time in many instances if they are employed on January 1, 2013.  These terminations open up opportunities for you!

REASON FOUR:
The Presidential election will be over, so the problem of waiting until after the election to hire, no longer exists.

REASON FIVE:
Job satisfaction is still at record lows and the people who are currently employed are accepting new opportunities which results in more jobs being available.

The worst thing you could do is delay your job search efforts until after the holidays like much of your competition will do.  Don’t convince yourself that people don’t hire during the last quarter of the year – because now you know the opposite is TRUE!

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Amy is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does.

    Amy contacted me in a time where I was unhappy where I was but wasn’t doing anything to change it. She was very informative and if she didn’t have the information at hand, she got it. She revamped an old resume making it more about achievements than responsibilities. She coached me on interview tactics before multiple interviews and was there to talk about them afterwards. Every conversation we had felt more like a friendship than business. She is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does. She also helped boost my confidence through the entire interview progress. Whatever she is doing, she must be doing it right because I got the job! Thanks Amy for a life changing experience.
    Sincerely,
    Shawn Ware

  • I would 100% recommend Ross

    I cannot begin to thank Ross and Karen enough! without the two of them I wouldn't have even known about the position! The interview process was quick, easy and simple. After only a short week I was in a position I knew I was going to love forever and it was all thanks to them! Ross has been so good about following up with me even after being hired, asking how my experience has been, what hours I'm working etc. and to top it all off Ross even sent me a gift card thanking me for working with him. I would 100% recommend Ross to anyone looking for a career in the industry!
    Cheers,

  • I had the pleasure of working with Doug Lockwood

    Doug was extremely professional and was very easy to work with. He was quick to respond, made himself available anytime I had a question, and was always checking in through the entire process. He coached me through the interview process by sending over necessary documents to read over on my own time, giving pointers on the phone, and talking through details. You can tell Doug cares for each person he works with. Even after getting the job, he is still checking in to see how things are going and making sure all is going well. I would recommend Doug to anyone when looking to start their career or looking for a career change. He was a great resource to have when needed.
    Thanks,
