December Job Hunting

Hard to believe another holiday season is upon us!  Before we know it, 2012 will be history. Although we've enjoyed the year, December always seems to take us by surprise.  This year has been a busy one in the Technology field.  We've gone from sluggish hiring in the beginning of 2011 to an all out shortage of Technology professionals today.  If you've been considering a job change, it is not too late!   Our clients are hiring and a December Job Hunt may be just what you need to cap off a great year.


The CONEXiS Staffing team is here to help you reach your career goals!  We specialize in recruiting Software, Engineering and Information Technology Professionals for start ups, emerging growth companies and some of California's most respected companies. Opportunities exist for full-time, project and consulting engagements. Let us know how we can help you!


Best wishes for continued success in your career!

Top Reasons to Job Hunt in December



Despite the perception that hiring slows down or comes to a halt before the holidays, there are plenty of companies that want and need to fill their positions before year end.  In addition, job hunting in December is beneficial to candidates as well.  Here are some of the reasons that you may want to take advantage of the situation and consider your career options during the month of December.

Top Reasons to Job Hunt in December

1.  Work Needs to be Done:  Our clients are busier than ever.  There is no kicking back and waiting for January at most Technology firms.  Hiring is a priority.

2.  Use Them or Lose Them:  Companies with open positions may lose the requisition if they are not filled by the end of the year. These Hiring Managers are highly motivated.

3.  Down Time Works to Your Advantage:  One of the biggest challenges in job hunting is taking time off to interview.  Perhaps you have some time available to accommodate interviews?

4.  Beat the Competition:  In January, many more of your colleagues will be motivated to consider their career options.  By interviewing now, you have less competition.

5.  They Really Mean It:  Hiring Managers who invest time to interview now are really serious. They are not "testing the waters", they seriously need to hire.

6.  Start the New Year with a Bang:  Imagine this scenario-interview, offer, acceptance and notice all before mid December.  Enjoy a little extra time off to enjoy the holidays with your family and start fresh in the New Year!

CONEXiS invites you to consider your options.  Visit to view all open positions.  Let us know how we can help you give yourself one of the best presents you could receive-a new career opportunity for 2013!
