There are approximately 33-million job openings in the United States this month. And while some job searches can take up to 5 months, the average hire time is 23.8 days from interview to hire. 

It may be tempting to neglect your job search in the hustle and bustle of holiday stress. But this could be the best time to shop for the perfect gift for the most important person in your life.

If you want a new job for Christmas, don’t let the holidays be an excuse to slack off. Use them to your advantage. With many companies actively hiring and less competition from other candidates, now is your time to shine.

Despite what you may think, companies are always hiring. It takes an average of three weeks to hire someone new, so they can’t afford to stop during the holidays.
