To our candidates, searching for a new job can be overwhelming, we know that. And we are grateful that you're considering Shiftfillers to help you in this journey. With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve around the corner, you’re probably thinking if you should put things on hold for the holidays. As a little treat for you, we’ve put together the 3 top reasons why Thanksgiving weekend is stuffed full of opportunities for lining up a new job. 


  1. Employers are hiring
    Jobs are booming across the country, with many companies offering higher wages and perks to attract workers ahead of the holiday season. Be sure to check out the main job boards and get in touch with your staffing agency - we're here to connect you with several clients! Hiring is now more on-demand than ever. If a company needs a new employee, they won’t wait to start the hiring process. If you’re vetted by a staffing agency, you’ll be in advantage.

  2. Less competition
    Many people prefer to pause their job search until the new year, which means you'll likely have less competition for available jobs if you keep applying during the holiday season.

  3. Thanksgiving is great to do some networking
    Thanksgiving is all about being with people you love, even if only virtually. When catching up with family members, friends or former colleagues, don't be shy and casually let them know that you are looking for new career opportunities. You may end up finding that someone knows someone who is hiring, or you can get helpful advice. 

We wish all our clients, team members and candidates a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! For more information about our hiring services contact us today or if you’re looking for a great job this holiday season, check out our current job openings now!
