Should anyone even bother looking for a job in July? Or, worse yet, pound the pavement in the dog days of August? Everyone’s on vacation then, aren’t they? What are the odds of getting an interview?
Starting a job search in July is actually not a bad idea. By the time you study your options, register on online job-seeking sites and send out a few dozen resumes, hundreds of thousands of college students will be turning in their resignations to go back to school, often leaving pretty good jobs open.
Someone will have to replace summer interns by the end of August. It may as well be you. Job-hunts typically take about six months, but end-of-the-summer turnover sometimes makes the process go faster. Employers get used to the extra help and are often anxious to replace it.
