Even more so, January and February have been proven to be the best months to start job hunting. Why is this so? It’s the beginning of the New Year, businesses have formed new strategies for the work year that often involves needing new hands to help them implement them and they also make budgetary allocations for these recruitment exercises.

Not to mention that business owners and executives are typically highly motivated ad the start of the year and open to hiring new talent. Also, people tend to leave jobs at the end of the year – some do this to collect end-of-year bonuses and dividends; some to start on a new page (as it were) and others because it’s simply convenient.

The post-lockdown economic recovery efforts has also led to a gradual increase in hiring that were halted as a result of the global pandemic that depleted the economies of most countries and led to a job crisis. 

For these reasons, it’s advantageous to start sending out applications for jobs (if you already have not).
