As students go back to school, some working parents may be moving back into the job hunt. Summertime is a slower
hiring time for most companies. As we move into the Fall, employers will be planning for first quarter 2019 and in certain
industries be hiring for the upcoming winter months.
- Consider industries that have historically more seasonal
hiring activities to get experience in skills that you need to progress. If customer service or sales is an area you want
to pursue but don't have significant previous work in that area, check for seasonal hospitality, restaurant, or special event
- Look for career fairs that specialize in hiring for your
industry. These could be posted through professional organizations and industry websites.
- Find new sources for information
on hiring trends and career planning through the public library or professional affiliations through LinkedIn.
