5th January 2018 – The lure and excitement of New Year resolutions has traditionally meant that January sees a spike in new job applications, while it is widely considered that December and the busy holiday season translates into a lull in the job market. To put this to the test, job search platform Joblift has calculated the difference between demand and supply for jobs each month in 2017. Interestingly, Joblift’s research shows that the festive month is the second best time to apply for a position, while January to April should be avoided in terms of application success.
