december job hunting

December is here with us and it being a holiday month, some of you are wondering whether it’s high time they took a break from job searching. If you are serious on getting a job before the year ends, then contrary to popular opinion that things are slow in December, the month offers you a great opportunity to take a final stab at job hunting and nail that position.

Consider the following if you are thinking of slowing down.

December-01

  1. A lot of temporary and part time opportunities. Some industries hire a lot during this period. Consider supermarkets or those in retail, hospitality, and any business with products or services that appeal to consumers during the festive season. Another sector that will need a large workforce in December is transport. If you are unemployed or on leave, consider looking for a temporary or part time gig. Salaries can range from a low of K’sh 500 to a high of K’sh 5,000.

December-02

  1. Time to network. The month of December offers you a great opportunity to reconnect with loved ones, family members, colleagues, and lost friends. This is also the season to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people. Meet these new people with a purpose. Who knows; that man or woman you are travelling with could be a decision maker somewhere and informs you of a new vacancy or provides you with some new information.With a relaxed office schedule and some having taken leave, people are willing to go out and in the process connect and make new friends. In Kenya, over 50% of jobs are never advertised and hiring is through word of mouth. As you get to meet people, let them know you are in the job market and the kind of opportunities you are targeting. This is the time to mix play and work.

December-03

  1. Time to Contact HR or Recruiters. It’s true that in the month of December, recruiters and HR managers don’t have a lot on their plate. As such, they are more likely to be available for a meeting and hear you out. December is a perfect time to contact decision makers and find out what they look for in candidates. Even if they don’t have open vacancies, you’ll be on top of their mind whenever a vacancy arises in the New Year.

December-04

  1. More Vacancies In December. Ask any recruiter or HR manager and they will confirm that most people quit their jobs in December and January. Because of the New Year, some employees feel that it would be a good time to have a new employer and so they leave work in December. Ask around and you will realize some of your friends are serving notice. Employers have no choice but to fill these positions. If you are not actively job searching you might miss these opportunities. Keep your ears on the ground and get to know of opportunities before everyone else.
  1. New Positions in December. Companies plan in advance. They don’t wait for January to advertise and hire staff for new departments or positions. No employer wants to start a new year in chaos. It is for this reason that company’s source for employees for the new positions in December. And come January, it’s all systems go.

December-05

  1. Less Competition. Let sleeping dogs lie. As majority of jobseekers assume that there are no opportunities in December and stop looking and applying for open vacancies, there’s possibility of less competition when it comes to job applications. Don’t slacken. Continue visiting websites like Brighter Monday and apply to all positions that you are qualified for. As the rest are busy chasing chapattis, you’ll ensure you secure a bright future by remaining active in the job market.

 

Ultimately, getting a job depends more on you than on what season we are. Smart job seekers are always looking for opportunities by staying focused on their goals.

    I have heard time and again my colleagues telling me about hiring institutions that recruit on behalf of their clients then after a person is hired their take a given percentage of their salary as a fee for the job connection,is it true?

    • Hi John,

      We can not conclusively say such organizations exist, but we can offer cautionary tips;
      1. Ensure that if you find such an organization you conduct thorough background check on it.
      2. If possible, ask to sign an agreement that states what they will do and how the money will be deducted.

      Kindly get back to us if you have further questions.
