Is now a good time to be advertising jobs or should I wait until after Christmas?Posted: 29.11.2017
As we say goodbye to November i'm here to tell you that December has its "pros & cons" with advertising for new staff! Whilst everyone is going on Christmas work do's and buying Christmas presents, organised people are using their time off to attend interviews ready for a new challenge in 2018 as well.
We have watched this happen year after year! Hopefully ... we all have 2 cracking days with the family... Christmas day & Boxing day and once that's over, most of us are wondering what's in store for the new year ahead. Some of us are in jobs we don't want to be in, some of us just need a new challenge and some of us need a change of direction. We always have a spike of traffic and applications across Suffolk between Boxing Day & New Year!
December as a whole, varies more than most months from day to day when it comes to applications and traffic.
So... is December a good time to be advertising?
It depends on your business model and whether or not the Christmas period demands that you recruit more elves. If your looking to expand your team in the new year then certainly the later part of December would definitely be the time for you to be advertising your jobs.
Good news - Our present to you...
Just Suffolk Jobs are offering an extended period of advertising for all businesses in Suffolk for FREE! If you place an ad in December we are DOUBLING the listing period to 56 days for no extra cost!
We are doing this because we don't want you to miss out on all the people that are on our website over Christmas and New Year! This is a time when more people than not over the festive season are relaxed with a mince pie. Whilst everyone is off work (at some point) catch the people that are inspiring ambitions for 2018!
