People who are unemployed often do not bother looking for work during the Holiday season. They figure it is pointless because most hiring managers are already checked out for the year.

At Southwest Search, we think this is a big mistake! January is the toughest, most competitive and most crowded job market of the year – precisely because most people do stop their job search during the holidays.
