Early fall is one of the two strongest hiring periods of the year. That means, if you are looking for a job, this truly is your time to shine.
And the reason this is such a critical period to pour on the energy and move forward? Employers are gearing up after the summer slowdown, putting new projects into place, and hiring. They need employees to fill positions and carry out their plans—so don’t let this important time pass you by!
I realize that the job search can be especially discouraging for older applicants. However, do not be fooled by the bad news out there. Know that the statistics quoted in articles are general in nature. They do not take into account how YOU are conducting your search: how many hours a day you devote to looking for work, how you are going about your search, how qualified you are, and who is in your network.
