BCS Kansas Discusses Job Hunting In The Fourth Quarter

LEAWOOD, Kan. – Nov. 14, 2018 – PRLog — BCS Overland Park/Leawood, KS says that being in the right place at the right time is often why some people get hired over others, even though they may not be as qualified.  The fourth quarter is a good time to start the search because most job seekers will sit out with the perception that hiring slows down at this time.  While this is true, less competition in the market benefits those who don’t attempt to time the hiring seasons.  Also, with first quarter being the busiest for hiring, getting a head start helps to get the pipeline filled up and speeds up the hiring process.  While hiring can happen at any time, the first three months of the year tend to be the most active, so the best time to start the process is in the fourth quarter.  There are three strategies that can be implemented to speed up the hiring process.

First, do research on the industries to be targeted to get a better understanding of the hiring cycles/seasons.  Second, accelerate networking during slower periods when others are “on the sideline”.  Finally, tap into social media including LinkedIn for information on hiring patterns and as a resource to contact someone directly who works for the company.

BCS is a career management firm located in Overland Park, KS and assists professionals and executives in various industries across the country.  They have 49 cooperative offices in five countries, including the U.S., Australia, Canada, Scotland and England.
