Welcome to The Stuff Your Accountant Isn’t Telling You Podcast where we tell small business owners how to use the secrets and strategies that big businesses use to increase their profitability. 

The timing of when people start looking for new jobs can vary based on a range of factors, including industry trends, personal circumstances, economic conditions, and more. However, there are some general patterns that have been observed:

  • Beginning of the Year: Many people start the year with a fresh perspective and new goals, which often includes considering new job opportunities. January tends to see an uptick in job searches as people set their resolutions.

  • Post-Summer: After the summer months, there tends to be a surge in job seeking. This could be due to individuals returning from vacations and getting back into the routine of work, leading them to reevaluate their current job satisfaction.

  • Graduation Periods: Graduates, whether from high school or college, often begin their job search in the months leading up to their completion. This means spring for high school graduates and spring or summer for college graduates.

  • Performance Review Cycles: Many employees time their job searches around performance review periods. If they're not satisfied with the outcomes of their reviews, they may start looking for better opportunities.

  • End of the Fiscal Year: For businesses that follow a fiscal year that doesn't align with the calendar year, the end of their fiscal year can be a time when job searches increase, as employees assess their positions before potential company changes.

  • Major Life Changes: Life events like moving to a new city, getting married, having children, or other major changes can prompt job searches as individuals look for positions that better align with their new circumstances.

  • Industry-Specific Trends: Some industries have specific hiring cycles or peak periods. For example, retail might see a surge in hiring before the holiday season.

  • Market Confidence: The overall economic climate can influence job search patterns. During periods of economic growth and confidence, more individuals might consider exploring new opportunities.

It's important to note that while these trends can provide insights, individual circumstances can vary widely. Some people might be actively looking for new jobs throughout the year due to personal reasons or dissatisfaction with their current roles. Additionally, the rise of online job platforms and digital networking has made job searching more accessible and continuous, regardless of the time of year.
