Why do more people look for jobs in December than in January? Here are reasons why job seekers are more likely to search for new opportunities at the end of the year.

There are a few reasons for why year-end is a more popular time for job seeking than in at the year-start.

One is that many people receive end-of-year bonuses in December, which gives them extra money to spend on job searches.

Poor bonuses are also a core reason why people will go out seeking for a new job.

Additionally, the holidays tend to be a slower time for businesses, so people have more time to devote to their job search.

Finally, many people make New Year's resolutions about finding a new job, so they start their search in December in order to hit the ground running in January.
