For everything in life there is the best point in time - just like there is the best time to wait, shop and to sell – the same goes for your multilingual job search.

Why is now the best time for you? Well, after Christmas you should be rejuvenated and started the year with new motivation and everybody has good resolutions for the new year – some want to quit smoking, exercise more, have a healthier diet – starting a new professional career abroad or changing the career path is also high in the ranking.

Why is January then said to be the best time of the year to make this move and apply for a multilingual job abroad? Just one short remark in advance – our telephones showed us over the last weeks that our multilingual candidates have a feeling for it – at the end of December, our office was really quiet whereas at the beginning of January our phones won’t stop ringing.

Why January the Best Time:

You may be thinking otherwise as people are just coming back from the holidays and things can get messy – all true but come to the end of the 1st week back to the 2 weeks of January everyone is back in full swing, everything is settled and everybody is focused on the new year.

Just think about it – everyone has just had a holiday – no one will be having one for a while so everyone from recruiters to the main decision-makers will be in the office – you could be looking at getting an answer to your application sooner than you think – during this time nearly no delays have to be faced because all important contact points should be reachable and are also full of motivation to recruit for new talents like you. It’s also in their interest to find adequate support for their multilingual teams.

Companies usually receive their new budgets around the new year so after they could be looking for quick hires if their budget was frozen just before Christmas. Applications which couldn’t be considered before Christmas can be now taken into consideration.

Another great reason why January is the best month to apply for a multilingual job is that several vacancies have to be filled at the end of January or in February. Some employees wait until the end of the year to hand in their notice and normally the notice period is approximately 1 month & those positions are now waiting for various multilingual speakers.

When it comes to relocation, January is also a great time to apply for a new multilingual Job. Think about it – of course, the weather is not the best in this period of the year but this also has an influence on the flight prices. The demand for flights within Europe in this month is much lower and no holidays are around and therefore prices are much lower. Several holiday destinations won’t be that popular during this month and consequently, fewer tourists will be in cities like Dublin which also makes the search for temporary accommodation easier for you.

You see? There are a lot of reasons why January is the best time to apply for a new multilingual job abroad – start your job search now and as we are a multilingual recruitment agency this is also the right place for it.
