Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Now that it is officially springtime, you may start to see resumes and cover letters blossoming left and right like the flowers outside! Every season has its own unique hiring trends, and as far as spring is concerned, many companies start looking for more and more people to take on. So why exactly is spring such a popular season for new hires, and how can an effective screening process help your company narrow down this wide field? Read on to find out!

Certain industries and companies that need to gear up for a busy summer season do the majority of their hiring in the spring. This gives companies the opportunity to fully train new employees before they are completely swamped with work in the summertime. Because of the timing, many of the new employees that are taken on are recent college graduates with little work experience, making it that much more important to get them the training that they need in spring. Some of the industries that see a huge influx of new hires in springtime include:

-Tourism (i.e. hotels, resort businesses)

-Hospitality

-Construction

-Landscaping

-Education (i.e. private tutoring and test prep courses, in preparation for fall)

In addition to these, almost any business will see its regular employees taking more vacation time during summer, and so they may decide to hire additional help in the spring to make up for that lost productivity.

Are there Seasonal Trends in Hiring New Employees?

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

With the changing of the season just around the corner, you might be wondering just what else progresses in a cycle like that. For instance, have you noticed that during a certain time of year your company is more likely to be searching for new employees than during others? Believe it or not, there are patterns to the hiring process that coincide almost exactly with the seasons. So what part of the cycle are we headed into now, and how can you prepare your company with pre-employment screening services? AIR Pre-Hire has the answer.

The Summer Job Search Slump

During the summer months (June through August), hiring tends to slow, if not to a halt than at least to a significantly lessened pace. A major reason behind this is simply that people are less available in the summer; managers and supervisors use more vacation days during this season, so ensuring that everyone is present for an interview/hiring decision can be difficult. This puts many job seekers, such as recent graduates, at a disadvantage as they all swarm the job market at that time. That added competition on top of a slower hiring rate makes summer employment tricky to secure.

Rise in Fall

 After everyone has returned from their vacations and the weather has started to cool, the job market starts to heat up. September and October have been shown to be among the best times to set out on a job hunt, and consequently, managers might end up with more difficult hiring decisions on their hands. The influx of qualified candidates poses the issue of how to pick the best one- each applicant seems as perfect as the next, right? With pre-employment screening services, however, you are given new tools to further narrow down the field and develop a team that will work best for you all year long.
