According to Job Market Insights data, the UK labour market is showing signs of recovery: total job offers published in Q1 2021 increased by 27.6% compared to the previous period. Although there was a drop of 2.1% year-on-year, it was minimal versus the last three quarters of 2020. Good news for job seekers in the post-Covid era.

Is Summer Really Bad for Your Job Search?

This entry was posted in Articles, Careers advice, Employment trends, JobisJob Data and tagged , , , , , on by Andres Herrera.

There is a common perception that companies slow down or even stop hiring processes during summer months. You may feel tempted to take a break from your job search and succumb to your naturally lazy nature.

However, is this the best time to stop the search?

Based on JobisJob’s market trends, summer months present a great opportunity for job seekers. In the UK, analytics reveal that in 2019 there has been an average of about one million active offers per month and these figures remained the same in the July-September of 2018 period. On the contrary, the lowest period of the year was December, during end-of-year festivities, when job offers fell by 30%.

Can we predict the same behaviour of the job market for this summer? According to most recent trends, the same seasonal pattern will repeat this year: job offers will surely not decrease.

Therefore, why should you postpone those summer plans and keep on track with the search for the best career opportunities? We give you four more reasons to reconsider your plans for the next few months.

1. It’s a matter of probability

Most likely, you’re not the only one who believed in the summer-slowdown myth. But the equation is easy − look at it this way: with less competitors in the race, your chances of being hired are higher! With hundreds or thousands of applications received for only one position, recruiters usually discard candidates based on objective parameters and don’t have time to carefully analyse each one. Fewer applicants means more possibilities of standing out.

2. Summer temp jobs can lead to a permanent position

With many employees on holiday, many companies look for temporary workers to fill vacancies. Temporary jobs and even summer internships are an opportunity to shine and convince your future employer to keep you. If not, you’ll have gained experience and narrowed the gap between your last job.

3. You can take some days off to schedule appointments

If you are currently employed, it’s easier to ask your boss for one or two days off during these months. You’ll have more freedom to schedule appointments and interviews, or even to update your resume and write some cover letters. And if you have pending holidays, why not reserve a week to plan your search? (Definitely, writing a good resume is still important: don’t forget to check some tips and keep it up to date.)

4. Don’t overlook the fact that people are in a better mood

Most people are on a higher energy level during this hot season and this can make us feel more empathic (summer boosts the mood, science says). Take advantage of it when you meet recruiters. You can also reactivate networking activities and call those old friends from school that may help you in your career shift.

Of course, some difficulties can arise. Hiring processes tend to slow down. After the first contact, recruiters and managers can also go on holiday and may postpone their final decision for some weeks. While they probably want you to settle in to your new position when the business activity starts up again, in the meantime, they have no reason to be in a hurry. You’ll need to be patient.

In this globalised world in which we find ourselves, Job Market Insights has thought it opportune to carry out an analysis of which are the predominant sectors in some countries.

This overview brings you closer to know the reality that surrounds us: what is the most offered sector in each country and which are the most in demand job positions, with a comparison between 2017 and 2018. Maybe this will help you on your way to look for work in the future or maybe it will make you rethink about some important aspects of your life.

On the other hand, we must not forget that any company that wants to get a good orientation and positive vision towards the future needs not only to remember the customer is the key but also have clarity about the job market.
