3 Reasons to Start Searching for Your Next Hire - Right Now

The holidays are quickly approaching, and you might think it’s time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor before 2019 hits.

However, when it comes to growing your team and finding that perfect new hire, it’s better to start early.

Here’s why:

1 - Candidates Are Looking Right Now
Now is the time of year when Holiday bonuses start to roll out. It’s when employers should be showing employees how much they appreciate the work they’ve done over the year. It is also the time of year when employees might finally realize that they are under-appreciated at work, or they would be better suited doing something different. Simply put, people are looking at this time of year and capitalizing on this means you will be ahead of the game when it comes to making an offer to an in-demand candidate.

2 - It Might Take Time
Finding the right person to add to your real estate team might not be an overnight phenomenon. By starting the search early, you are well positioned to have your new hire trained and ready to go before business picks up in the Spring. Which leads us to our final point:

3 - Q1 is the Best Time to Hire
There’s a reason that Q1 is known as “hiring season” by recruiters. And that’s because it is hands-down the best time to hire. At this point, you should have a good idea of your budget and sales projections for 2019. You should know for sure that you can take on another person and you should be ready to move on a hire swiftly and confidently.

From a candidate perspective, Q1 is when they are ready to make a move and start the year off on the right foot. By the time the Spring market starts they will be busy, just like you, and less likely to have time to job hunt.
