If you kicked off 2018 by tidying up your CV and browsing online for a new role, you’re not alone.
As meeting requests begin to bombard your inbox and deadlines loom, the prospect of switching to a new job sounds like a good one.
And guess what? Today – January 24th – is the busiest day of the year to search for a new job, according to our data.
Based on our 2017 figures, traffic on January 24th is 37% higher than the yearly average.
Christopher Paye our General Manager at Jobs.ie says
“Traffic to Jobs.ie increases significantly at this time each year, with 24th of January the busiest day of the year on the website. Christmas and New Year’s often afford busy professionals time away from the day to day demands of work, and in doing so, provides people with the headspace to reflect on their goals and priorities for the year ahead, including their career ambitions.
“This has typically manifested itself in increased user traffic across the month of January, and based on recent history, job seeker activity has peaked on January 24th. The Irish economy is in a particularly vibrant place right now and as a result, there are more opportunities than ever before for job seekers looking to embrace a new challenge or embark on a new career in 2018.”
