Year end close out sale! Everything must go.

Football season is almost over, and winter is on the way. Cold, runny noses, shorter days, and a time when everyone is looking forward to the Holidays, but during this time of the year, I really like it!

When the alarm goes off Monday morning, I'm a happy camper. I pop into the office with a big toothy grin, folks stare blankly as I saunter over to the coffee pot (Hey, it's free) and give everyone a wink and a nod.

Remember all those old reqs where the manager likes to interview a thousand candidates before making a decision. Or what about the hiring manager that is so busy? By the time he/she gets around to reviewing the resumes, the candidates have gotten jobs.

However, this time of the year it’s good to be a recruiter. Hiring Managers are looking to fill their positions before the year ends.

The same thing happens with retail each year. The prices are lowered to get the items sold and ready for new items next year. Consumers rush into the malls for bargain sales. You wind up buying that tacky sweater for Uncle Fred on Christmas.

The same with recruiting. It's the year end close out sale.

Folks fear that they will lose headcount for next year, if they don't hire someone this year. What a great motivator too! When you tell a hiring manager, their position will be canceled next year, suddenly they are ready to hire anyone off the street.

True. Football season is almost over. It’s getting colder, but this time of the year is just fine by me. Hiring managers are beating down my door to get candidates scheduled for interviews. I get to fill that impossible job that required a candidate to wear a cape and leap tall buildings in a single bound with someone that is…qualified.
