Traditionally the month of December is when many employees decide to change their jobs.
Below we highlight 5 reasons for employees to change their jobs during the month of December:
1. The year is Ending
The month of December symbolically and numerically heralds the end of the year and this can have a psychological impact within employees who feel that they have not achieved as much as they wanted during the year that is drawing to a close.
2. A New Year is around the Corner
The month of January signals the start of a new year and this also motivates employees to go for a fresh start with a new employer. This is particularly relevant, if the employee is not happy or satisfied with their job role.
3. Opening up of Opportunities
With many job roles falling vacant during the month of December, this presents an opportunity for those looking at bagging their dream job, changing or switching up their career paths. Some employees might be attracted to the chance to work for an employer they have been wanting to work for and others can be tempted to switch careers in order to advance their future outlook.
4. 12 months is enough to decide if you want to stay in a Job
Another reason the month of December is important to employees is that a time period of 12 months provides ample time for an employee to evaluate his or her effectiveness at their job, the suitability of the employer and the overall job satisfaction if they are to continue working.
5. Change is always Good
There are many employees who believe regular changes are important in order to ensure their skills, knowledge and experience are put to the best use in return for sufficient compensation and remuneration. With many job roles and vacancies opening up during the months of December and January, those seeking change would be compelled to consider other alternative job roles and career paths.
