What to Expect From the Job Market During the Summer Months

Temps are heating up, but does that mean the job market is cooling down? Let’s talk about it.

Welcome to your official summertime guide to getting a job from your friends at The Impact Job.

There’s a common belief that the summer is a terrible time to apply for a job because companies and recruiters are less active in their search for the perfect candidates. What if we told you that wasn’t true?

Here’s why the summertime is a great time to apply for a new job:

  1. Hiring managers aren’t as busy during the summer: there’s no year-end project or tax season to deal with, which means that hiring managers get to spend more time focusing on hiring folks like you.

  2. The competition isn’t as stiff: people spend less time applying for jobs and more time sipping margaritas by the pool in the summer. If they aren’t subscribed to this newsletter (sucks for them), then they may wrongly think that they should stop applying for jobs in the summer. All of this just means that there’s less competition in the summer and a better chance of your application standing out.

  3. Summer is a great time to network: everyone wants to be out of the office in the summertime, so it’s a great time to propose a meetup. Want to pick someone’s brain about their career path and ask them to mentor you? Have an old colleague you want to reconnect with so they can be a professional reference for you? The summer months are a great time to make these things happen since people typically have lighter work schedules and would love an excuse to leave their office.

Here’s our best tip for surviving the summer job market: don’t expect less. Walk into summertime with confidence and an abundance mindset, and you never know what could happen.
