My niece who graduated last March is still looking for a job related to a course that she finished. She tried to apply in banking companies but luck doesn't seem to be in her favor this time. She was desperate to get a job and seek online for possible opportunities. Applying for a job on December, as some may say, is not really best at this time of the year because most of the companies are in freeze hiring or busy gearing up for holiday. Yes, some companies do but others are not because they do hire when there is a vacancy that needs to fill up immediately. More companies need sales persons for holiday rush and usually hire temporary or contractual employee during this season, Christmas holiday that is. They usually hire sales staff and use e-verify poster for quick checking on status. But hey, not only the retail industries hire during holiday because even the corporate firm wants to get people on board as soon the new year starts, January.
There is no perfect and bad timing when applying for a job because companies hire employees all year round or when there is a vacancy to fill up. When there is an opportunity posted in a bulletin or even online, never delay and try to submit your updated resume or you'll miss the train for a minute late. If you are qualified and the employer wants you, you might get the job that you want.
