Summer Slowdown

Is it true that July is one of the most difficult times for job seekers? And not just because you are looking for work instead of going on vacation?

Consider that in many organizations, summer is a time for shuffling managerial responsibility to accommodate summer vacation schedules. Sometimes working with a skeleton crew in July and August, many companies are unable to bring together interview panels. Even more disturbing to the hopeful applicant is the reality that the person most likely to be responsible for signing off on new hire decisions is also one of the most likely to be sipping a margarita by some faraway sea!

As in everything related to job search, take the above observations as trends and not as full slices of reality! While summer vacations may halt the hiring process in some organizations, others move full steam ahead in bringing on new staff during the summer months.

So what is a job seeker to do? I suggest a two-tiered strategy. The first is to ensure that your search does not get stalled while you wait next to the phone by asking to discuss the company's hiring timeline at the conclusion of the initial interview.  The second is to realize that there is little you can do about sumer slowdowns other than to proceed forward with research on and resume submission to newly identified opportunities. They'll catch up to you!
