The Holiday Slowdown

It’s that time of the year, when pretty much everything stops; recruiting is no different. The impending Christmas and New Year make sure the festive mood seeps in everywhere and impacts productivity.

Organizations play with the mood and shut down hiring for the month for most positions until after New Year’s. It’s a great time to go back to the drawing board and start analyzing budgets and needs. It’s no secret that most recruiting/HR personnel along with hiring managers are on vacations ushering in the New Year. Pre-screening candidates or early rounds of the hiring process become extremely slow or non-existent.
