Sorry for shouting...but every year people want to give up on the job search in December. "No one is hiring during the holidays. I'll just give up for now." WRONG!!! The fact is hiring is strongest in the 4th Quarter, right through Christmas.
I have only been recruiting electronics manufacturing since 1990, so I could be wrong. ;) What really happens (in normal economic cycle years, like this one seems to be) is that managers put off hiring until the end of the year. Then they hire furiously. Fill the Reqs or lose them...or wait until budgets are approved...put on hold...rewritten... reapproved...which puts us well into the 2nd Quarter!!!
Moral of the Story: Job Hunt HARDER in December! Q1 Freezes may be/ are coming!
