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

  • Darryl Jackson has been amazing during this whole process!

    He has kept in contact with me from the very beginning! He gave the company I interviewed for a good vision of myself and they are talking highly of me! Without Darryl, I would still be jobless! He has called me on several occasions to check in and show me that he is reaching out to the next people he needs to reach out to! I could not have asked for a better supporter to help me in my job search! His business is going to excel if he continues to work this hard with his clients like he did with me and I honestly cannot thank him enough!
    Thanks,

  • Matt gave excellent information that helped me put my best foot forward. 

    I had the pleasure of working with Matt Lopez.  We have been on this journey with a few companies. I always felt well represented and excited about the opportunities I was presented. His timely follow up is one of the many attributes that stood out the most.  It is hard to find professionalism at this level.  He gave consistent feedback, and pep talks before my interviews.  It's quite a process when dealing with second and third interviews, and Matt constantly provided great energy and enthusiasm.  He also made sure I was always prepared in having all the ammunition I needed.  Whether footnotes, information about the brand, or providing key examples to respond during the interviews.  With this pandemic, it's been difficult.  Many companies are hesitant with the direction they are moving.  Even with my vast experience, Matt is my most valuable asset.  I have several Colleagues and I would highly recommend his service without a doubt.

    Best,
