January is a great, if not the best, time to search for a new job.
It just is. Why?
Employers are filled with new hope, new budgets, new directives and a bunch of other "news."
Even if this isn’t technically the start of their new fiscal year, they know it’s the time of year employees take stock. They know the best employees will be mobile, so they want to hire those best employees.
They also pray their best employees don’t go all mobile on them…as in create unplanned vacancies!
