Jobsite's findings do not really surprise me, we saw the same over the Christmas period. Applications have always been at their lowest during the festive break, people have too much eating and drinking to do rather than worrying about applying for jobs.
It makes sense that candidates would wait until they are back at work to reconfirm their feelings on leaving their current employer. Either way we expect a very busy January at OnlyMarketingJobs.com
Instead of candidates using their Christmas break to find a new job, they’re starting their job hunt after returning to their current workplaces. According to Jobsite’s report, job applications are expected to rise by around 60% this morning based on last year’s trends, which saw an influx of candidates during the first day back to work – Chronicle Live reports.
