Based on the massive influx of business I experience each January, I know well that the new year brings a FLOOD of new job seekers to the market.
Won't it be fun to be more than a month ahead of them in this race?
Won't it be sweet to land a cool job before the flood gates of "I hereby vow to find something better in 2012" competition arrives?
Yes, yes it will.
Don't write the holiday season off as "dead months." Instead, realize that the majority of job seekers do this.
And use this knowledge to your massive advantage.
