January is an employer’s job market. Each new year, an influx of new applicants enters the job marketplace—meaning now is the best time to post your jobs and fill any open positions expected over the next few months.

View our infographic below for compelling proof on why January is a small window for a big hiring opportunity. Our team analyzed historical data from Snagajob’s #1 marketplace of more than 75 million hourly job seekers and found January–compared to December and February–sees a dramatic spike in the number of people who start off the new year looking for a new job.

See what that means for employers’ applicant flow and candidate quality and why you should post your jobs today to take advantage of it, too!
